  • Counterfeit Parts Avoidance
  • First Article Inspection Report
  • Acceptance Test Reports
  • Certification of Conformance

Design Reviews & Analysis Before Delivery

The final performance of your servo drive will ultimately depend on many complex factors. Our goal is to analyze these factors and identify opportunities to increase efficiency and create an ideal solution for your application. Our engineers will carefully review the initial designs prior to delivery, adding modifications and suggestions when applicable. We will work closely with you to reduce cost and increase performance!

Engineering Design Reviews Include:

  • System Requirements Review (SRR)
  • Preliminary Design Review (PDR)
  • Critical Design Review (CDR)
  • Manufacturing Readiness Review (MRR)
  • Test Readiness Review (TRR)
  • Flight Readiness Review (FRR)

Our Approach To Obsolescence Management

As technology and manufacturing progress, hardware and software of any kind will may eventually become obsolete. Our engineers consider components availability during all program phases and develop obsolescence contingencies accordingly.

Dependable Software

The software used to test, monitor, and run this hardware must be equally resilient and easy to use. ESI works carefully to create straight-forward interfaces without sacrificing control flexibility. Our user-friendly GUI can have your motor turning in minutes while giving you access to configure and gather data on dozens of variables real-time.

Software Program Deliverables Include:

  • Software & interface requirement specification
  • Version Description
  • Development & quality plan
  • I/O communication configuration
