Three Phased Product Development

Orchid Technologies' three phased electronic product development approach is the key to your success. We start with Phase Zero—discovery and planning:

Phase Zero: Orchid reviews your product design requirements in detail. Working with your requirements and concerns, we create a Phase One Development Plan which includes: Top-Level Specification, Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) Cost Model, Prototype Cost Model, and Development Schedule all at the Phase One level.

Phase One: Orchid executes the Phase One Development Plan. During this phase, Orchid performs detailed design, fabrication, assembly, checkout and debug tasks. The purpose of the Phase One period is to produce and deliver a number of prototype units as defined in the Phase One Development Plan.

Phase Two: Orchid and the client test and rework the Phase One design, readying it for volume production. Practical experience shows that product changes are inevitable. The Phase Two period addresses those final changes which result from product redefinition, checkout, debug, testing, and production/process related activities.
