Streamlining the Development Process While Improving Quality
Pilot helped a battery manufacturer develop a uniform Design & Release process that worked across all product lines and applications saving time and manpower
Pilot was tasked with helping a battery manufacturer develop test plans and manage testing of batteries for a wide range of customers, including military, telecommunications, and industrial.
We created a uniform Design & Release process that streamlined the development and testing process saving time and manpower. Robust methods for collecting customer requirements created better designs, and ultimately higher-quality battery systems for the customer.
In order to evaluate and accomplish this task in an efficient and thorough manner, Pilot installed a team of four engineers at the battery manufacturer’s site. By being fully integrated into the company environment, they were then able to perform a gap analysis of the existing process and develop methods of collecting customer requirements. This resulted in the implementation of several key customer programs and the development of a universal Battery Management System. Finally, Pilot engineers then trained lead engineers at customer’s sites in the new system.
