Automation Consulting

There are some customers who want to develop their own original mobility or automate their current equipment, but cannot come up ideas for optimum development processes or core technologies.

For customers like these, we provide automation consulting services for planning development processes and the necessary elemental technologies.

Please don’t hesitate to consult us if you have problems like this!!

Development often tends to become a hardware problem

  • Pre-deciding on hardware sometimes makes it impossible to integrate the functions you want to develop as you move forward.
  • (Solution) Decide on functions and select hardware that satisfy those functions.

Can’t realize verification design combined with requirements and function design

  • If the verification is not designed as necessary, oftentimes the process moves straight from individual function verification to actual equipment verification. This results in frequent reworking and a difficulty to understand the scope of the effects of modifications after actual equipment verification, making it impossible to verify validity and completeness.
  • (Solution) Implement verification design simultaneously with design of requirements and functions.

Function batting is sometimes a problem

  • In cases where individual groups of functions are purchased as products from other companies, or supplied by open sources, developers need to carefully consider factors such as whether such products can be combined and the extent of the effects of changes in various environments and base environments which can give rise to possible problems such as batting between functions or unusual behavior the cause of which is unknown.
  • (Solution) Gain a prior understanding of programs and products.

Functions to be developed and the model management system are unclear

  • Failure to define functions to be developed and formulate a model management system in advance will create confusion at the modification, roll-out and official release stages.
  • (Solution) Prepare a management system spanning the entire process from software requirements and design to application and tools.

Can’t ensure safety at the stage of verification on the actual equipment

  • Failure to check behavior theoretically in advance makes it impossible to ensure safety during verification on the actual equipment, especially with development of automation, possibly leading to unforeseen accidents and necessitating excessively careful verification on the actual equipment.
  • (Solution) Perform phased verification before proceeding with verification on the actual equipment.

Consulting on Introduction of ALM

What is ALM (Application Lifecycle Management)?

ALM is the concept of ensuring traceability by centrally managing software from the beginning to the end of its lifecycle.

  • Requirements and requisites: Management and analysis of requisites
  • Design and development: Configuration management / Software information management / Architecture and application modeling / Data modeling / Design / Programming / Development project management
  • Testing: Build management and testing
  • Release and maintenance: Maintenance / Continuous integration / Release management
  • Comprehensive management: Problem management / Change management / Resource management / Task management

Please do not hesitate to consult us with issues like this!!

  • Although have to perform trials of the development environments at the PoC stage, it is disorganized
  • Can’t reference written requirements or design documents planned and designed by other departments
  • Problems such as software developed by a certain department had actually already been developed by another in-house department, resulting in wasted effort
  • Can’t appropriately allocate tasks
  • Can’t assure a consistent set of test specifications for requirements
