SVM focuses on clarifying the requirements specification in close collaboration with the customer. This concept is described in the Basic Design Specification, which ensures that expectations are clear and transparent.
Once the agreement has been reached regarding an order, SVM puts together a project team comprising: project manager, design, hardware, software, and assembly.
The team reaches consensus regarding layout, EM (Equipment Module) structure, DS (Design Specification) structure and cross-referencing.
The final concept is established during the design phase, documented in the DS (Design Specification) and reviewed together with the customer. Design deadlines for individual modules are specified and controlled in the production overview.
Once the production basis is complete, production may begin. In addition to classic documents such as parts lists, drawings, diagrams, etc., the Design Specifications and test plans are vital documents for the production basis. Mechanical Design delivers “drawing packages” to production. Hardware delivers electrical documentation to production.
Software, which is an essential component of system performance, is quality-assured by means of review and simulation.
The software is developed in phases in accordance with the EMs (Equipment Modules). The software is quality-assured by means of review and simulation before it is installed in the system.
The purchasing requirement is exported from the engineering environment Catia and PC-Schematic to the ERP system Dynamics Ax via the PDM system Smarteam. Purchase orders are generated and tracked using Dynamics Ax. Goods receipt takes place at SVM’s logistics center, which distributes the items directly to a pallet for the respective module (EM). Only when the pick list for an EM (Equipment Module) is complete is the pallet transported to SVM’s module assembly area.
Goods delivery deadlines for individual modules are specified and controlled in the production overview.
Module assembly is performed based on the Design Specification, the assembly drawing and the electrical documentation for the module in question.
After module assembly, system assembly begins, including the arrangement of electrical wiring and air ducts between modules and to the board in the machine. Assembly deadlines for individual modules and system assembly are specified and controlled in the production overview.
Assembly concludes with a hardware test.
The system is divided into groups in order to ensure optimal running-in. Once running-in is complete, the documentation is updated and final documentation is issued.
During FAT/SAT, the system is tested against the specifications issued by the customer. For medical customers, a URS (user requirement specification) is documented when the test procedures are carried out. Once FAT/SAT is completed, a FAT report is prepared.
SVM Service is able to provide a variety of services:
SVM offers customized service agreements. An SVM system has a service manual in which all service measures are recorded. SVM quality-checks 100% of manufactured spare parts prior to shipment.
