The pilot phase is one of the most important phases in the development process.

The Pilot Phase

The pilot phase is one of the most important phases in the development process and is one of the core aspects of our stage-gate DFM approach to product development. By performing early-run pilot manufacturing builds, we have the opportunity to critically investigate both the design and manufacturing processes. This allows us to make iterative improvements before it becomes too cumbersome and costly.

Assembly and Test

Schivo utilize onsite ISO 7 & 8 cleanroom facilities in order to offer full turnkey product assembly system integration. Our assembly offering includes system build for precision-manufactured, fabricated, and purchased materials. We create and implement operating procedures, test sub-assemblies, and test for electromechanical system integration.
