With our small team we answered thousands of inquiries, optimized the entire electronics, made countless CAD designs and¬†adjustments, programmed the firmware, secured the finances¬†of¬†the company, implemented the production processes in close cooperation with our manufacturer, defined use cases, programmed¬†the prototype¬†web¬†portal and carried out¬†various tests, including¬†the field test. The procurement of the materials¬†has been¬†secured, legal clarifications have been made,¬†knowledge has been obtained with¬†regard to¬†standardization and certification¬†and¬†a lot of¬†general¬†administrative work¬†has been done.
But¬†what is our current standing?¬†Our manufacturer will put the final touches ¬†on the print layout between¬†Christmas and New Year and then¬†produce¬†the prints. The aim is that our manufacturer produces¬†a small number of prototypes from¬†beginning to end, including the purchase of materials. This¬†test run¬†allows our manufacturer to¬†review¬†all production processes.¬†Once this is done, we¬†will be able to define¬†production and delivery¬†deadlines.
It has¬†now¬†become¬†very¬†cold, although we have no snow in the lowlands¬†of Switzerland.¬†Topolino¬†has been making himself comfortable in the office for some time now and¬†is keeping up an¬†active refusal to work, meaning he has zero interest¬†in going outside¬†into the cold¬†with¬†his collar. Fortunately, we have already completed our tests. ūüôā
We wish you a very merry Christmas and only the best for the new year.
