Quality, Robustness and Design Thinking

Not everyone starts from zero. Sometimes you already have the makings of something great. Studio Koje can help you knock it out of the park with design thinking.

‘Systems thinking’ or ‘quality  systems’ refers to fancy way of asking a very important design question. “Have I thought of everything?” There are a host of tools which help answer that question in a scientific manner; without spending money on prototyping or testing. Studio Koje can help bullet-proof your ideas with Failure Mode Avoidance. Tools like FMA have been used in the design of cars, planes and spacecraft for decades. Drop us a line.

Some of the tools

Failure Mode and Effects analysis (FMEA) | Parameter diagrams | System state-flow development | Function tree and Interface diagrams | Robustness check lists | Sociotechnical systems | Actor Network Theory | DesignX | Resilience Planning | Social Actor Mapping | Eco-cycle mapping

What do the experts say?

I worked with Kevin on a project developing a novel hybrid vehicle. Kevin authored the complete technical requirements document for the engine and thermal control system. Kevin ensured that he obtained the salient information from all areas of the business to populate the requirements documents with accurate and precise information. Beyond this, Kevin the handled the supplier interface to ensure the system was delivered to the requirements and the documentation was kept current. I would highly recommend Kevin's services, and look forward to working with him again in the future.
