How we do it
A step-by-step approach to deliver the right solution.
Understand the needsWe 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.
Learn the processesWe learn and assess the processes our customer uses in manufacturing, including the materials, the products and the applications.
Concept DevelopmentA 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.
Proof-of-PrincipleOur 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.
Final proposalOnce the Concept Development and PoP are complete, our team set out the final proposal for the delivery of the custom automation solution.
Designing the systemA collaborative design effort between all functions in Modular to design the system as planned in the Concept Development & PoP phase. This stage includes multiple customer design reviews.
Build & DebugThe final system is built and undergoes significant equipment testing, engineering runs and factory acceptance testing.
CE certification and documentationComprehensive documentation with all equipment CE certified, typically meeting Category 3 PLd requirements.
Final integrationFinal install, commissioning and acceptance testing is completed onsite at the customer facility. This includes post-install support to ensure the solution is working as intended.
