Fast Feasibility Studies

In technology-based companies, brilliant ideas are never in short supply. The hard part is knowing for certain which ones will work: too often, problems occur late in the development process resulting in significant rework. Our Fast Feasibility Studies service prevents this from happening. It provides objective and accurate pre-development evaluation of high-precision equipment concepts.

In our assessments we define a case-based approach and apply our world-class expertise in predictive modeling and (if relevant) Our multidisciplinary approach and extensive practical experience make us fully aware of the broad range of phenomena that drive performance. In this way we can reduce development risks in an early phase.

If needed we can quickly build a proof-of-principle setup in our in-house workshop and validate assumptions using our own measurement equipment and infrastructure.

Fast Feasibility Studies are common for semiconductor, capital equipment, advanced printing and medical high-precision systems. They quickly deliver value in any system that has challenging specifications and accuracy requirements. A Fast Feasibility Study removes guesswork, guarantees performance level, and helps ensure first-time-right results in creating your optimal solution.

How we deliver Fast Feasibility Studies:

  • Key performance drivers and critical-to-quality aspects
  • Machine concept feasibility checks and rankings
  • Quantify performance by predictive modeling of the system and relevant disturbances
  • Prototypes, mock-ups, and proof-of-principle setups
  • Modules/subsystems/parts assessments (note: best results achieved when the entire system is considered in its application ecosystem)
  • Machine improvements proposals

Examples of Fast Feasibility Studies

Rotary stage developed under strict performance requirements and component cost reduction demands, an elaborate calibration strategy is employed.

Normally the cooling liquid temperature is controlled via an external reservoir in systems using cooling liquid for heat removal or thermal conditioning.

Online self-calibration of a multi-probe system leading to an error profile that is virtually free of integration errors, allowing for on-the-fly in-line calibration.

How to determine if a product will meet its drop and shock testing requirements? Is it possible to predict this during design, so countermeasures can be taken?

What our customers value

“Philips Innovation Services offers specialized expertise that is vital to some of our key initiatives. They collaborate uniquely well because of their insightful yet efficient methods of problem definition, their transparent project management, and their analytical clarity.”

John Landrum
Vice President For Innovation
