Technical Development

Agility and innovation create great solutions

Excellence in innovation

We specialise in the development of safety critical embedded systems. Our approach is to elicit customer requirements, followed by decomposition to system requirements to allocation to sub system elements – including hardware and software. 3sK’s simple mantra towards product development is – “Create Once – Reuse Many Times”.

We can work with your existing product development processes or create a lean process – fit for purpose to deliver maximum value.


Quality, Robustness & Problem Solving

Thinking about quality from the start

Getting it right

At 3sK we underpin our work with robust methods and processes. We can provide fresh eyes analysis for your existing Failure Mode Avoidance and Robustness Analysis or lead the work from the start. In either case 3sK will provide honest and transparent analysis of your complex system or problems.


Process Assessment & Improvement

Always upto date and compliant with industry standards

Doing it the right way

Keeping upto date with the latest industry standards and processes can be time consuming. 3sK offers a unique service that incorporates the essence of ISO 26262, ISO 15288 and Automotive SPICE® into a simplified approach that your business can adapt with ease. 3sK can assess your existing process against these standards or provide you with bespoke frameworks to ensure you start off on the path to success. We are also able to support you in defining and deploying process improvement.


Organisational Management

Unlocking the potential of your people

Creating strong teams

Matching your organisation structure to your technical development streams can be difficult. At 3sK we can analyse your existing complex system and provide proposals for how best to organise your development teams. For new systems 3sK can help you to optimise the allocation of engineering effort onto your development plan. In either case understanding the Job Titles within your organisation and the Job Roles they are expected to fulfil is paramount to ensuring maximum efficiency.


Supplier Management & Auditing

Clearing the lines of communication

Working together

As the supply chain for developing complex systems grows, so does the need for clear communication. Matching the needs of the information consumer to the outputs of the information producer is vitally important. 3sK can help you and your suppliers to establish clearer and better lines of communication through technical documentation, reports, requirements and project plans. We can also assist in determining the performance of your suppliers through audits, reviews and monitoring in line with IATF 16949.


System Lifecycle Engineering

Managing your system delivery

Managing complexity

Designing and developing a system with distributed control systems can be a complex task. There are a multitude of things to think about and manage, from the very highest level stakeholder requirements down to the software functionality. Having a methodical and structured approach throughout the development of the system is important.

3sK can lead or support all stages of the system development lifecycle to provide the technical, process, quality and organisational knowledge in support of your delivery objectives.
