Steering the right automation journey

The right automation, in the right place, at the right time.

We operate as a close, trusted, automation partner to the world’s leading MedTech manufacturers, helping them to explore their automation opportunities, large and small. Collaborating closely with our customers, going deep to fully understand what they want to achieve, with a focus on delivering the best ROI possible. Our role is to guide and steer, using our 35 years of automation expertise to scope and plan a solution that delivers on the requirements, every time.

How we do it.

  1. Understand the needs
    We collaborate closely with our customers to understand their needs, with particular focus on the ROI they’re hoping to achieve, from reducing overheads and improving safety, to increasing capacity or throughput.
  2. Learn the processes
    We learn and assess the processes our customer uses in manufacturing, including the materials, the products and the applications.
  3. Concept Development
    A learning phase for both our customer and Modular, we develop a concept for the automation project, featuring the equipment or manufacturing line, helping to visualise the final implementation. The methodology helps to identifies the risks and feasibility of the project, providing greater clarity in terms of project execution, the equipment that will be used, how long it will take and what the overall budget will be.
  4. Proof-of-Principle
    Our Proof-of-Principle (PoP) methodology is used to de-risk the processes identified at the Concept Development stage, prior to commencing the main project. This clarifies the approach, timeline and budget. It’s the final step to ensure the automation project will meet the needs of the customer exactly as intended.
  5. Final proposal
    Once the Concept Development and PoP are complete, our team set out the final proposal for the delivery of the custom automation solution.

Proof of Principle (PoP)

Assess feasibility. De-risk processes. Enter full-scale development with confidence.

Our PoP methodology is a quick, cost-effective process used to eliminate project risks at the concept stage. Through rapid prototyping and reduced-scale trials, risks are isolated and mitigated as we test, validate and then refine. The results help to deliver more accurate cost and development forecasts for the project, ensuring our customers enter full-scale development with confidence that the solution will deliver as intended.
