The engineer-to-engineer process consists of several steps. The length of the steps will depend on the required amount of customization. Generally, creating a different variant of an existing sensing head and a customizing scales is a very fast process, taking a few weeks to complete.
1 Identify customer requirements
At the beginning of the project, the customer´s requirements are documented. BOGEN provides a checklist with the key parameters required to develop the optimal solution. The project can use target pricing but will have requirements regarding availability and quantities of prototype and pre-series parts as well as the serial quantities.
2 Engineer measurement solution
The engineering team develops a customized solution and determines costs, development timing and quantities for production.
3 Agree measurement solution with customer
The solution is presented to the customer and an offer for the solution will be made.
4 Design measuring head and scale
Once the offer is accepted, BOGEN will design the measuring head and customize the scale to the agreed specifications.
5 Provide prototypes
BOGEN will produce prototypes of the sensing heads and scales in the quantities required and prepare the pre-series production.
6 Provide preseries
BOGEN will provide pre-series production units to the customer.
7 Serial production
BOGEN will support the production of the measurement solution from the start of production (SOP) to the end of the life cylce (EOL).
