Project Management & Delivery
We apply this ethic in our approach to solution delivery by employing professional project management and meticulous planning. With respect to project delivery, S3 ID has a wide range of experience in supplying location, mustering and security systems of varying size and complexity using various technologies such as RFID and UWB. Our solutions are delivered using a team of experienced Project Managers, Project Engineers and Design Engineers who have extensive specialist applications domain knowledge. This approach ensures our systems are supplied on time and to budget, whilst maintaining high quality workmanship.
Functional Design Specification
Every successful project starts with a clear mutually agreed statement of what is to be delivered and how this is to be achieved.
Within S3 ID this is the role of the Functional Design Specification which provides the route-map for the projects delivery. This document is a ‘living volume’ and evolves from its initial sign-off as further detail is added throughout the contract.
The Systems Design phase builds upon the framework provided by the FDS to precisely define details prior to build. S3 IDs design engineering, manufacture and integration facility is located in Rotherham in the United Kingdom.
These facilities are housed in a purpose built complex just 2 miles from the M1 Motorway and are fully equipped for engineering, manufacture, assembly and testing. Our project orientated approach means we supply systems from conceptual design through to final commissioning and hook-up, together with a full range of after sales services and customer training. Our capability also includes a high level of design expertise interfacing our systems with other multi-hardware systems.
Systems Build & Integration
The capability of S3 ID‘s in-house software engineers is one of the company’s strongest assets.
A wealth of industry specific application engineering can be utilised on projects with the development of hardware and software performed in parallel operation and then brought together as a whole resulting in a totally integrated system approach.
All software design is undertaken strictly within QA System Codes of Practice and Control Procedures, which are audited on a regular basis by both internal and external authorities.
Testing facilities are available for modular and fully integrated systems testing. Our approach to modular software and electrical testing are integrated within the company’s standard design procedures.
In brief, test records are kept at all stages identifying successful testing and any failures where snags / bugs were found along with details of the corrective actions taken and signed off.
Fully integrated witnessed factory acceptance tests are performed with 100% simulated inputs and outputs. Elevated temperature recorded heat soak tests may also be performed at additional cost, where required, on systems in their final configurations.
Successful project delivery requires comprehensive documentation to both support the engineering process and to provide the correct level of detail with the system supplied to ensure it can be fully supported in the future. The following documentation is typically generated and supplied with each system:
- Functional Design Specification
- Software Design Specification (for both standard software modules and project specific code)
- Full System Drawings pack including Connection Diagrams & Settings Tables
- Operator & Engineering Maintenance Manuals (including default access codes)
Quality Management, Health Safety & the Environment
S3 ID is a BSI Registered firm of assessed capability to: BS EN ISO 9001 2008. We are also accredited by QMS for our Environmental Management System to BS EN ISO 14001:2004 and for our Occupational Health & Management Systems to BH OHSAS 18001:2007.
The quality policy of S3 ID is established in the company Quality Manual and the associated Procedures and Design Codes of Practice. These documents lay down the required system necessary to maintain good quality working practices and are available at the company offices for inspection.
Setting to Work
To complement our in-house systems engineering, S3 ID also provide a comprehensive range of After Sales Services andSpecialist Counsultancy Services as described on our associated datasheets.
Our highly competent and experienced commissioning team is skilled in setting our tracking, location and mustering systems to work and in optimising their performance on site in the most expedient manner.
