How does a systems integrator make a client’s design vision come to life?


To help its customers better understand the project design lifecycle, mission-critical systems integrator Delkia, has released an informative infographic explaining the process for a design project.


The new infographic provides information on the engineering design process, from inception to completion. It details the steps taken to ensure quality and reliability, such as the functional design specification and negative testing.


The engineering design lifecycle is not an easy task and requires rigorous testing and validation to ensure it adheres to industry standards, such as IEC 61508 for Functional Safety of Electrical, Electronic and Programmable Electronic Devices. Typically, each phase of the design process has an associated phase of testing and, in systems which are safety or mission-critical, there is often an element of independent oversight to provide surety to the client.


“It’s important to our clients that they keep up-to-date with industry-specific technologies, to stay ahead of competition.” said Gareth Powell, Systems Integration Manager at Delkia. “Delkia assists its clients to develop platforms, products and services from the early concepts and requirements management to behavioural analysis and validation, verification and testing (VVT). This infographic will provide value to Delkia’s clients by giving them an insight into the design cycle and see how their ideas come to life.”
