Requirements Analysis / Feasibility Studies

  • Requirements Analysis, together with the Verification process is an integral part of the CPE Project Management process regardless of project size
  • Requirements and Verification approach needs to be flexible to cater for the variety and size of projects undertaken
  • Requirements capture is the process of documenting what the customer wants from the system
  • Verification is the process of providing objective evidence that the delivered system meets the requirements
  • CPE uses the V development model which is tailored to suit the size of the project being undertaken
  • The V model defines the stages and importantly establishes the link between the requirements and verification stages

Design and Verification

This phase focuses on developing the technical solution for the application using the skills outlines on the Capabilites page. An element of this phase is the integration and verification of the design against the requirements agreed upon with the client. As part of this process, reviews and audits are conducted in the following areas :

  • System Validation
  • Code Reviews
  • Design
  • Quality

Production

CPE is geared to manufacture electronic and mechanical systems up to quantities up to 100. Above 100 items and the production is outsourced to subcontractors. This includes:

  • Purchasing
  • Production
  • Production Testing
  • Warehousing
  • Shipment

Training and In-Service Support

A large part of CPE's work is involved in the support of our systems after they are deployed. This includes support of systems from third parties. CPE also provides training for the systems that it develops. This usually takes the form of a PowerPoint presentation that references the Operator and Maintenance Manual and is delivered over two days. In addition CPE can provide training for :

  • LabVIEW
  • TestStand
  • Data Acquisition
  • Test Systems
  • Requirements Analysis
  • Project/Programme Management
