Panel Development Process
Our attention to detail and industry standard wiring techniques provide you with a panel that will be easy to maintain and service. All panels come with complete schematics and documentation packages developed in AutoCAD Electrical and, at minimum, point-to-point inspection performed prior to shipping.
Gibson Engineering follows a four-step simple and effective process for custom control panel fabrication.
1. Review Requirements
The first step is to review the requirements of the control panel. Determining important stipulations allows Gibson Engineering to design a product that meets your exact needs.
This process includes identifying the following factors:
- Enclosure size
- Available incoming power
- Internal component requirements
- Installation environment
2. Solution Development
In the next phase, Gibson Engineering professionals create a viable control panel solution based on your needs and specifications. This step includes preliminary engineering and design and a collaborative review. We will also provide a bill of the material required and present our final proposal.
3. Production Phase
In this step, engineers finalize the schematics and layout of your custom control panel and begin building the design. Gibson Engineering requires a final design review and customer sign-off before manufacturing begins to ensure customer satisfaction.
After final approval, the design is released to the production group and constructed.
4. Solution Delivery
The final stage in this process occurs after the manufacturing is complete and the product is ready to be tested. Gibson Engineering ensures the control panel is set up for success through extensive point-to-point testing in addition to power-on testing. We include programming as necessary and provide final documentation with the completed panel.
At this point, the control panel is finished and ready to be deployed in your company for higher efficiency and more effective operations.
