At Porticos, we strive to ensure that we meet or exceed the requirements for our designs. Carefully evaluating designs for compliancy to the design specifications and correctness, completeness, and consistency throughout the process are the keys to meeting and exceeding project goals while keeping overall costs reasonable.
As our customers projects move from concept to production, our verification processes track the project activities against the plans and ensure that requirements for design, implementation, and testing are being met consistently. If the project is deviating from the plans, then a course correction is required. Either the plans need to be changed to reflect reality (while still embodying a quality process), or the project needs to refocus on the defined processes. It’s very easy to throw processes out the window when schedules get tight, but experience has shown that doing so only makes it more likely that additional problems will be created. Planning and implementing a quality process help projects avoid costly missteps.
Simulation is one of the primary ways that the design synthesis process is verified. At Porticos, our engineers generate the test benchmarks, define the simulation runs, and perform simulations based on project requirements. Testing is performed in-house or at local accredited agencies capable of exposing and certifying the product against standards such as MIL810, ISO 60601, UL or CE.
Identifying design problems, and solving them as early in the design cycle as possible, is the key to keeping projects on time and within budget. By conducting thorough verification and validation, we can assure our customers that our deliverables have been stringently evaluated and meets the needs of the customer while complying with regulations, requirements, specifications, or imposed conditions to ensure that they perform to design goals and specifications. Porticos’ product verification and validation provides timely data during all phases of the product development cycle which is critical in making decisions about the products being released to the marketplace.
