SITE ASSESSMENT

Once we understand your business goals and needs, we move onto our site assessment service. In this valuable service, we identify all your existing process controls and find opportunities to increase efficiency in your production. Through site assessment, we consider your ROI, NPV and payback period all to present a general solution tailored for your organization. If you have already had an OEE or regular OEEs, we build on that knowledge and progress to a FEED study.

LEARN MORE


FRONT-END ENGINEERING DESIGN

We proceed to Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) after the results of the site assessment are discussed with you and accepted by you. The FEED sets the foundation for a successful project by allowing us to collaborate with you to define the project scope, schedule and expectations. We help you set a clear budget with clear objectives to implement the solutions that best match your needs.

LEARN MORE


DETAILED ENGINEERING & DESIGN

In the detailed engineering design phase, we turn the conceptual idea of your automated system into tangible designs. We specify precisely how your system will work by providing documentation on system operation, architecture, hardware and software components, network and security, installation, configuration and deployment… Here we will also flush out project risks, planning for them by nailing down a realistic project budget, execution plan and timeline.

LEARN MORE


PROJECT EXECUTION

We design your system on a foundation of understanding so that we can rapidly implement it with absolute precision. We program each function in your system and set up an intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) and reporting that allows your team to adopt your system efficiently. We outfit your system with the reporting you need to stay on top of your production. Prior to installation, we run your system through several rounds of intensive testing in a simulated environment to make sure it works. Once we have programmed your machines, set up your HMI, created a useful reporting program and tested the functionality and performance of your system, it is time to install your system in your facility. When on-site system installation is complete our Team again extensively tests the operation, performance and functionality of the new system holistically from the field devices through to reporting.

VALIDATION

Computer System Validation (CSV) is a must in FDA regulated industries. We design and implement your system to deliver consistent, efficient production that also meets CSV for FDA. And we prove it too. If you operate in a regulated industry, we take care of the paperwork related to CSV and reduce your Regulatory risk. We can provide a Validation Master Plan (VMP) and use it to guide our work. We document requirement specs, design specs, functional specs, test plans, installation and operational protocols, trace matrices, and summary reports. We execute the protocols as well. We assist with keeping your records up-to-date via change control and help keep your system in compliance. Minimizing risk is ingrained in our company because we are committed to delivering you ROI.

LEARN MORE


TRAINING

Your engineers, operators and maintenance staff are critical to the effectiveness of your system. Once your system is up and running, we make the most of your investment by providing your staff with the training they need to effectively and efficiently operate, maintain and improve it. We offer in-depth training services, higher-level training services and customized, system-specific training by developing a model-based process simulation. We provide system-specific operator training, maintenance training, and engineer and support training. And we can take you and select team members through a high-level overview of your whole production process.

LEARN MORE


POST-PROJECT SUPPORT

If any troubles emerge with your system, we have you covered; whether it is warranty or support under a formal service contract. When you work with Malisko Engineering, you don’t just get a system, you get a whole team to support it. If you have a full maintenance and system support staff on-hand, we will provide assistance to fill the cracks. If you need full support services, we are available 24-7 to make sure your system works. We can provide full post-commissioning support and build remote support access into your system.
