IMS services are rendered in two key ways. 1) Augment and complement your internal staff or subcontractors to handle peak workloads and tight schedules. 2) Perform entire projects in a “stand alone” manner.
IMS services saves you time and money.
- Opportunity to offload selected projects.
- Receive competent and expert help when and where needed.
- Eliminate the burden of permanent salaried personnel on payroll.
- Reduce overhead costs in facilities.
- Fulfill government requirements in small business subcontracting.
Conceptual Design: Demonstrating understanding of customer requirements with design approach and feasibility is critical to building a solid foundation for successful product development. Therefore, our team focuses a lot of time and energy on requirements definition, cost analysis, conceptual layout, trade studies, material selection, use case analysis, preliminary design, and risk assessment. Always keeping in mind the design intent, design specification, environmental conditions, and manufacturing considerations. And documenting every step of the process. The result is a set of integrated ideas that demonstrates successful execution of the product’s intended functionalities.
Detailed Design: By using advanced computer-aided-engineering (CAE) tools such as 3D solid model rendering we are able to virtually build and assemble the end product. Taking into consideration powerful parametric and dynamic design features of such CAD tools. As a result, virtual optimization is achieved prior to committing to costly and time consuming manufacturing processes. 2D drawings conforming to ANSI Y14.5 standards are generated with all the necessary details to precisely build product with repeatability. Thorough tolerance analysis is performed, ensuring all components will assemble properly.
Independent Design Assessment: IMS can perform independent design reviews for a broad range of products. The scope of these reviews ranges from quick preliminary analyses to help with early concept development to formal reviews conforming to the rigor of Defense Acquisition University (DAU) and Systems Engineering Technical Review (SETR) processes. Ensuring customer confidence through intermediary and incremental check-ups of the development effort.
IMS provides prototyping and production capabilities for defense, aerospace, commercial, and wind power industry. Our experience with mechanical design, materials, and manufacturing helps you reduce the number of defects and rework to achieve high-quality, reliable, and cost effective products. We work closely with our customers to produce products with a high degree of accuracy and as efficiently as possible. In addition to our own facilities, IMS maintains strong relationships with several manufacturing firms capable of producing precision products in wide range of sizes and shapes, at high production rates.
Independent verification and validation (IV&V) ensures that the product is built per requirements, specifications, and standards, and that it functions as intended. This is accomplished with rigorous system integration and test planning early on in the product development stage. Applying a building block approach integration by incremental buildup, testing, inspection, and analysis ensures its smooth verification. Our team will work with you to develop test procedures with objective test steps and perform data analysis to ensure that all requirements are verified.
Successful projects requires thorough planning and effective execution through proper control and monitoring techniques. IMS ensures this by developing detailed integrated master schedules (IMS) from the start of each project, using proven earned value management system (EVMS) to control and monitor execution progress, and manage risks with effective risk management system (RMS). With these tools our team can manage your projects within cost and schedule, while maintaining quality throughout the entire project. Our experience allows us to handle projects of all size. IMS is focused on your project success.
