Product Development Approach

As a system provider we are familiar with all phases of the product development process. This includes the system analysis, the concept development and the mass production. We offer expertise and synergy benefits from all areas of industrial electronics and mechatronics.

Our core competencies are:

  • Hardware development
  • Software development
  • Construction
  • Systemintegration
  • Product validation according specification requirements

Our development processes have been defined in accordance with ISO TR15504 (SPiCE) (see picture below). We ensure that by early integration of requirement and quality management into the individual development phases your projects will be finished on schedule and under economical conditions.

Risk Management

This does not only offer advantages in the product life cycle, but is also an important component of the risk management. So we can ensure also in an emergency – e.g. natural disasters – a prompt fulfillment of our supplier obligations. You can count on us!

How We Work

We rely on a common practical approach to each project. This approach allows us to gain a comprehensive understanding of your project and to provide you with the best solutions for your specific needs. Our customers benefit from the extensive participation of our experienced engineers on every project. This approach ensures that your project is completed with the highest degree of quality and performance.

Kick-off meeting

We aim for building long term relationships with our clients and use proven processes and procedures to ensure your project is delivered within time and budget frame. One of the most important steps in this process is the project start-up phase. During the project launch we are able to gain a comprehensive understanding of your project goals and objectives and ultimately to create schedules, communication strategies and budgets.

Feasibility Study & Concept Evaluation

The next step for the succesful implementation of the project based on the information collected during the kick-off meetings is the research phase. The research phase allows H&P to enter deeper into the project by organizing follow-up meetings and further information gathering as well as field investigations.During the research phase we are also able to identify all challenges and to develop solutions before the implementation phase.

Design & Functional Specification

The design phase is a very important stage in the project process. During the design phase we develop equipment and system requirements, flow-charts, select the necessary resources, develop plans for the milestones and prepare functional requirements, requirement specifications and project documentations. The collected information that was gained in the start, research, planning and design phase will flow into the preparation of the final work packages and budget.

Construction Phase

During the construction phase we follow the requirements and specifications that were developed during the planning and design phase and work together with customers to ensure the required project deliverables.


The delivery is first verified in accordance with the agreed specifications and passes all required testing procedures. For each test a test release associated with a test protocol will be provided. The relevant documentation and testing protocols are included.
