Our client, a leading provider of commercial lighting products, had a problem. Virtually every controller they manufactured was custom. Predicting COGS was difficult and often margins were negative. They knew if they could reduce unit cost, they could open up new markets.

The Solution

Modular design that allowed configuration of the number of channels, type of channel and control of channels to be plug and play. Custom design is reduced to a configuration sheet developed by salesperson and customer. Manufacturing is simply plugging in modules to a chassis per the configuration sheet.
