Building and testing prototypes can easily delay a project. Design flaws in a prototype may mean that an additional prototype needs to be constructed. Such iteration steps have to be avoided as much as possible. Often, it is easier to work with a simulation model than to work with prototypes. We therefore always reduce the prototyping work to the bare necessity.
Outsourcing the production of hi-tech electronics may result in more than a month of lead time. Z.E.S. has a special agreement with a production facility that can make complex assembled PCB’s in a matter of days. Prototype enclosures and mechanical parts can often be quickly realized with 3D printing.
