MEVIPRO Report Summary

Project ID: G1RD-CT-2002-00719
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Sweden

New concept & product development

The use of simulation, optimization and analysis of thermo mechanical issues in the design and verification phase, will save a great deal of development time and lower the amount of physical prototypes needed. Also the future design will experience higher yield in manufacturing and lower field-return and recall issues. This can be done as a part of a Kitron development project or as a separate service or as a part of a customer's design or verification project.

The service including use of methods and tools from the Mevipro project will be used in real customer cases. No other Scandinavian company competing with Kitron can today offer the added value of virtual prototyping as a part of the product design & development service.

The business potential is especially obvious in the automotive industry with more and more electronics in cars and vehicles and the accelerating requirements of high reliability. The Swedish automotive industry is very strong and Kitron have several customers among manufacturers of cars and vehicles as well as among the automotive components suppliers.

There is also potential in other high reliability application areas like defence electronics and medical electronics.

The end-users of this service can be found among Scandinavian product-owners and components suppliers as existing Kitron customers today using manufacturing and/or engineering services. There is a clear possibility for Kitron to expand business with existing customer and also attract new customers with the new service and added value.
