As a full service company in electronic product development, MBS has a large amount of expertise to handle a wide range of electronic development projects.
In the past, MBS has gained a lot of experience developing products based on digital and analog electronics, micro-controller, real time embedded software, serial communication and PC based systems. Also in the field of wireless, transducer interfacing, switching power supplies, audio and smart ballast electronics MBS has noteworthy experience.
However as a product development company one has to be able to do more.
Almost always, the finished product has to compete commercially in the world market. This means that the cost of producing the product has to rival or better its competitors. Because this cost is to a great extent determined by the selected parts and assembly method, our development system initiates price negotiations in an early stage when part selection has not been fixed. The result of these negotiations often drive design decisions and can dramatically reduce cost.
Once a product is out in the field, its reliability or actually the lack of it, can become a serious liability. MBS uses procedures which help to predict warranty liability. To reduce this liability from the start, MBS can build in-circuit and functional testers, equipped with full SPC (Statistical Process Control) reporting. At the product design phase, serious attention is given to design for manufacturing and design for test. This reduces assembly time, simplifies the testers and increases test coverage. All this improves quality because the lack of it can cost more than just money. It can cost your reputation.
MBS does not own a mass production facility. This frees us to use any technology we think may best suit the product. The annual volume can be 1000 or 1,000,000 units. All this will influence our selection of a suitable contract manufacturer. MBS has direct experience with many contract manufacturers inside Australia and overseas.
And finally, none of the above guarantees a good result without proper project management. To coordinate the tasks and people, MBS has demonstrated to have the management expertise to guide the development project to a happy end. Please read our customers testimonials.
