Prototyping 

 Definition and preparation of product development prototypes.

Development 

Specification’s definition and performing testing programs for the selection of product specifications, design verification and / or validation of the product.

Industrialization

Support for the industrialization of the product by defining the significant characteristics of systems and components, and control plans.

Reverse Engineering

Advising to improve products, materials and components and / or existing processes.

Project Management

Project management with complete follow-up processes.

Project Support 

Support for client participation in international research and development projects at European and intercontinental level, etc. 

Outsourcing
