AVENCORE assisted in the development of a new generation of space equipment.
Two prime requirements: reduce costs and keep a tight schedule to maintain a head start over competition.
The solution was to move from a project mindset to a product-oriented policy, with a maximum of generic components.
Rather than design products on a customer-by-customer basis, our client wished to develop a standard product capable of responding to a large range of applications. By mapping and cross referencing customer requirements, we identified core features and customization requests. We, then, helped our client design a generic equipment, with a catalogue of available customization options.
The company reduced its costs by over 30% and cut its time-to-market in half, while improving the level of quality perceived by the customer.
