With the help of the Scalo engineering team, the client decided to build a completely new control system that integrates the emerging technologies of industrial IoT, like smart sensors, IoT communication architecture, machine learning algorithms and energy-efficient components.
To enable the company’s continuous product improvement in terms of performance and new functionalities to be embedded, the scope of Scalo’s engagement included designing not only the system’s new architecture, but also a new software development process.
The client was interested in implementing the V-Model software development process, and notwithstanding a limited amount of expertise and experience, decided to cooperate with the Scalo team. The V-Model was to provide the client with the necessary traceability and an easy-to-use design environment.
The Scalo team helped to build a well-defined and fault-free process to optimize the work of the client’s engineering team. The goal was also to allow for the future system’s process refactoring. Another idea was to create a link between software engineering and other engineering areas to support the project management process and collaboration between teams.
Another challenge was connected with providing consistent communication between the software and hardware engineering areas. Indeed, during the project, our team not only cooperated with the client’s software department, but also with mechanics, hydraulics, and electrics specialists.
