Our working method
How we address each process or product innovation project
1. Preliminary analysis
Our goal is to embark on paths of process and product innovation through well-balanced, long-term collaborations marked by seriousness and concreteness.
The know-how of our technicians and their ability to approach projects with a holistic mindset are our most valuable resources. Thanks to this, at Eureka System, we tackle every project, even the most complex, with a method that has been refined through numerous experiences.
It always starts with analysis: following one or more preliminary meetings and on-site visits with the project's objectives and prerequisites in mind, it will be possible to identify and understand which solution is needed, whether the idea is achievable, and the associated costs in terms of time and money.
2. Technical-Economic Feasibility Study
This phase involves the systematic analysis and evaluation of project characteristics, costs, and potential outcomes based on the initial overall idea. It encompasses both technical and financial activities (cost analysis) concerning the feasibility and economic-financial sustainability of the investment.
- Collection and processing of information – Assessment
- Study and exploration of all possible solutions devised in collaboration with the client – Co-Design
- Estimation of activities and execution timelines – Project
- Economic calculation to support payback analysis – Finance.
3. Co-Design Of The System
We design solutions for and with companies, aiming to create partnership relationships that emphasise collaboration and attentive listening. Flexibility, customization, security, and eco-sustainability are our guiding principles.
The co-design project phase allows the company to identify how to digitise and innovate its processes while maintaining the production methods that have been refined over time. Outputs from the co-design phase encompass the technical-functional analysis of the solution, the identification of regulations and certifications required by the system, and the definition of technical specifications for implementation and integration.
This step becomes a fundamental asset in the case of complex projects that can have significant impacts on business logistics.
Through in-depth analysis of operations, realistic modelling, and carefully designed event simulators, it's possible to understand how to manage intricate logistic and organisational flows, optimise workflows, and address potential architectural and structural constraints, avoiding costly analysis of alternatives.
5. Prototype realization
In Eureka System, we develop tailor-made solutions that always originate from software development and often encompass design, mechanics, and electronics as well. For each of our projects, our keywords are user-friendliness, easy maintenance, and IT/OT interconnectivity.
This phase, the prototype realisation, concerns the purely operational aspect, the moment in which we bring the technical specifications to life and subsequently proceed to the implementation phase.
6. Prototype validation
During this phase, the proper functioning of all system components and functionalities is verified.
Once one or more prototypes are physically created, the validation phase of the identified solution is followed by an eventual reengineering phase necessary to optimise the prototype and bring forth the actual solution.
The system startup phase involves several steps: installation and integration; configuration and hardware and software tuning; functional testing; validation testing; FAT and SAT testing.
Next, we move on to operator personnel training and the provision of manuals and other documentation.
8. Service, maintenance, and updates
For every automation or software solution developed, we provide our customers with a comprehensive service, from installation to commissioning to customer care. With professionalism and expertise, our team ensures all necessary technical support, whether through on-site interventions or remote assistance. The Service Level Agreements we offer can be both standard and tailored to the specific needs of the client company.
From the moment we take on a project, we not only guarantee the supply of hardware and spare parts, but above all, we ensure companies' software continuity: having conceived and developed the system, we guarantee the capability to perform integrations and modifications, as well as to develop new functionalities when needed.
