The Product Engineering Services (PES) team at Mistral has significant expertise in DFM (Design for Manufacturability). The design process adopted at Mistral aims at optimizing end-user requirements with the lowest cost design, material and process combinations; thereby ensuring a smooth transition into production, for quick time-to-market.
At Mistral, the team typically plans for two prototype runs: the first spin focuses on feature testing, and the second addresses FCC and manufacturability. Mistral follows the following best practices for a high-quality product design: one that aims to minimize the number of parts, create multi-functionality of the part, minimize part variations and create ease of handling.
Reduced number of parts to:
Minimize the chances of a defective part or an assembly error
Decrease the total cost of fabricating and assembling the product
Design verifiability into the product and its components to provide a natural test or inspection of the item
Work closely with industrial designer to avoid tight tolerances beyond the capability of the manufacturing processes
Design robustness into products to compensate for uncertainty in the product's manufacturing, testing and use
Design modular products to facilitate assembly with building blocks
Design modular parts, for ease of fabrication and commonality with other designs
FCC, UL certification, CE Marking compliance testing
Mistral has a well defined sourcing process in place, which ensures on-time availability of components during the design life-cycle. This is backed by a mature process cycle adhering to the quality norms of ISO 9001:2008; making the services highly reliable and cost-effective, thereby offering faster turnaround.
