Process Consulting: What Works Really?

For more than a decade we have been living processes for efficient development ourselves. We can put our experience to work for you. Especially the experience of how we live meaningful processes, as a small company without huge quality assurance resources.

We analyze your existing working methods and then support you in establishing processes for efficient and effective product development of standard products. In addition, we also have the knowledge and experience for the processes required for developments in functional safety and cyber security. In these areas we cover many different industries.

Together with you, we can build such processes and implement them in your organization.

Development Processes

How do you build a viable process landscape?

More than ten years ago, we set out to document and continuously improve our working methods ("processes"). In doing so, we based ourselves on CMMI (Common Maturity Model Integrated) for "what" we should do. For the "how" we proceed pragmatically and use methods from the V-Model, Lean, Agile...

We are happy to pass on this experience, especially so that smaller organizations or organizational units quickly receive efficient templates, tools and processes. There is the possibility that you can use our process descriptions and templates for a faster start.

Processes are not a goal, but a way. The goal is not to turn your company upside down, but to document the best ways of working. These can then be made available to all projects and employees and continuously improved. On the one hand to increase your efficiency, on the other hand to keep them liveable in the fast changing context of tools, customers, products, markets...

We can accompany you on this way. We can show you how to design processes, their improvement and review as a task from all for all. This way, all users of the processes can identify with them and take responsibility for "their" way of working. As a starting point for your own process journey, we would be happy to evaluate your lived processes.

Functional Safety

How to develop for functional safety?

Do you need to create functionally safe products? We can support you with our experience from the identification of the applicable standards, analyses, definition of processes, selection of tools to sensible technical solutions. We accompany you through the entire development cycle and support you with our knowledge and experience.

First information about the effort and tasks can be found on our blog. We are active in various industries and can therefore offer you consulting on functional safety for aviation/avionics (DO-178, DO-254, ARP-4754, ARP-4761), automotive (ISO 26262), machinery directive (ISO 13849), medical technology (IEC 62304) and general industry (IEC 61508).

Cyber Security

How do you protect your embedded system against attacks?

Do you have a product that should be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT)? You want to be sure that the data on the product is secure? That nobody can manipulate the device without permission?

We support you in "hardening" your embedded systems, from the controller to the cloud. We perform threat analyses and develop a secure architecture for your system. For a robust solution in terms of cyber security, we consider not only the operating phase but also production and deployment.

Tools

How do you Really Benefit from Software Tools?

Are you using or evaluating one of the tools below? And you would like to know how to use in practice, pragmatically?

We know these tools in detail, because we use them ourselves:

So we offer tool consulting from engineer to engineer for their application, also in functional safety projects. In addition, we can give you access to our best practices, templates, workflows and processes, which we can also customize for your situation and train.
