Our first-article services identify business and technological drivers that define the project requirements, parameters and deliverables. We have a track of record of meeting the strictest demands of highly regulated industries and eliminating production stress, allowing you to focus on your products, services and customers.
Whether your delivery programs are at small or large volumes, a well-planned and controlled First Article process will mitigate risk, avoid unnecessary expenses, and minimize legal liabilities.
Our design process
Understand and document the business needs, functional requirements and desired performance outcomes. The information collected during discovery is used as the basis for the Design Requirements Specification.
Design Requirements Specification (DRS)
Define an optimal Bill of Materials (BOM) and select the most appropriate vendors in order to support the budget, scalability, manufacturability, and longevity while maximizing the benefits of the platform.
Computer System Validation
The CSV process establishes that the Installation (IQ), Operational (OQ) and Performance Qualification (PQ) of the system will meet the business requirements and provides assurance that the process will consistently deliver a product that meets the defined specifications and quality attributes.
First Article Inspection
This is the first produced unit that both the customer and Momentum agree to use as the required standard for all subsequent units. It establishes that the production process for the unit is correct and can reliably mass produce the product to spec.
Our approach to system integration provides our customers with the ability to scale from First Article to large volume production deployments. Our California operations and multiple warehouses give us the flexibility to integrate and ship globally.
As an ISO 9110 and ISO 13485 company, we exceed our client’s exacting quality and efficiency metrics.
