Technologies Design and Development
designs and develops products for our customers. The steps
we use are provided below. Xmultiple complies with all ISO9001:2008
standards when designing all of our products.
9001 Design and Development 7.3
Planning. Who is going to do it? How and when will they communicate
with one another?
7.3.2 Input. At the start of the design process we have some
design brief or outline specification. In addition to the
technical aspects of product design, we also used our quality/business
objectives to form the design input to develop an advanced
product. Xmultiple looks for innovated ways to improve and
make the design a new and lead-edge product. In addition,
at this input stage of product design we look for ways to
make the production and assembly at the lowest possible cost.
Our modular magnetic connectors have been designed to reduce
production cost by using a modular magnetic section inside
the connector which can be tested prior to the final assembly
of the connector.
Output. The final drawing or specification should meet the
input requirements. The output would normally be used as basis
for Purchasing and Process control.
Review. At key stages of the design relevant people should
review the design to ensure that the inputs are met and to
identify and resolve any technical problems.
Verification. Basic concept - "Does it work on paper?"
Validation. Basic concept - "Does it work in reality?"
Changes. Consider the impact of proposed changes, especially
in terms of "backwards compatibility."
Design Review Step
review is something we do periodically during the design process
to make sure weˇ¦re on track. Is everything going as planned?
Have any problems come up? Do we need to do something differently?
The whole point of design review is to identify and remove
roadblocks to successful design.
design planning, we identified the various stages of the design.
As part of this, we also determined the number and timing
of the design reviews. Every design will have at least one
design review, and complex or troublesome designs may require
People involved in design reviews must include the representatives
from functions involved in that stage of the design. So, excluding
a key player for the sake of convenience would be a problem.
Finally, design reviews always produce records. The record
will indicate the results of the reviews and any necessary
actions the design team decided to take. Design review includes
meeting minutes, memos, design files, emails, or other records.
Design and Development Verification
is where we compare the outputs against the inputs. Does the
available evidence indicate that the design will meet our
requirements? The verification could consist of calculations,
simulations, prototype evaluation, lab tests, and comparison
against samples, first article inspection, or other methods.
Xmultiple maintains records of design verification, and these
records indicate the results of verifications and any actions
Design and Development Validation
is similar to verification, except with validation our engineers
actually checking the designed product under conditions of
actual use. Verification is theoretical, but validation is
the real world. We conduct validation prior to delivery or
us and we will design and develop a customized product for
you in the half the time using our extensive experience and
