System definition & concepts for electronic and mechatronic systems

Firmenlogo von Electronics Engineering Ehrecke

I provide assistance for your chief engineering from the start of your project, with detailed knowledge of system definition and specifications over requirements management up to your conceptual design.

Our services in definition & concepts

One of my core competences is the interdisciplinary work at the interface between hardware, software and mechanics. This effective merger of different disciplines is a key to your project's success during the requirements definition and concept development phases.

I assist and guide you in drafting your first concepts incl. their evaluation to define your optimal strategy and setting a major mile stone in your project to be well prepared for the Detailed-Design phase.

If outsourcing of subprojects should be required, I assist you in acquiring the right suppliers, with defining your requests for information and proposals ( RFI / RFP ), inclusive the management of your potential suppliers to deliver the optimal solution for your project.

As an important step forward in evolving and proving your concepts, I moderate and manage the performance of different failure mode analysis.
