Implementation stage
This stage involves the development of the final product according to the design documentation and planning. This usually involves manufacturing the final product for the client. This may include the following aspects:
  • PCB layout
  • Software deployment
  • Mechanical drawings
  • Bill Of Materials
  • Manufacturing methods / instructions
  • Pilot production runs
  • User manuals and supporting documentation
  • Application notes
Testing is carried out according to the documented test procedures. The results of various tests are recorded to show the success of each of the product’s functions. Some projects with complex electronics and software controls will have automatic test scripts created to automate the testing required with long soak tests to ensure the reliability of the developed product.
