Automation and modernization of production

Why is automation and modernization of production at an enterprise used?

Let’s imagine that there is a need on the market for a device that will solve a specific problem and satisfy a customer need. How do we turn this idea into a real product? Let’s look at each step that goes into developing a specific device required by the customer.

Defining needs and requirements

First, specialists from the electronic equipment development department discuss with the customer what exactly the future device should do and how it should do it. During this meeting, we define the device’s goals, a list of desired features, and other wishes.

Creation of technical specifications

Based on the received requirements, we formulate a technical task. This is a document that describes in detail all the characteristics and functions of the future device. When developing, we must constantly focus on this document.

Development of a schematic diagram

Our engineers from the Ascom development department begin creating the electrical circuit diagram. This diagram shows what electronic components are used in the device and how they will be connected to each other. This circuit is the basis of any electronic devices. Modern electronic devices are almost always built on the basis of microcontrollers – this simplifies the circuit and makes it easier to set up the device and easily change the functionality if necessary. Instead of using microcontrollers, it requires the engineer to have knowledge not only of how certain radio elements work, but also experience in programming.

PCB design

Once the circuit is ready, the next step is to turn the circuit diagram into a PCB model. Creating a printed circuit board is a process where each component from a circuit diagram is placed on a model and tracks are drawn between these components – connections that act as conductors.

Making a prototype board

When the board design is ready, we produce a prototype. This will allow us to see in practice how our device works in real time. After this, the software is created and the necessary adjustments are made before mass production begins. At this stage, everything is constantly coordinated directly with the customer.

Software development

Once the hardware is created, Ascom’s engineering team begins working on creating the software that will control the device. They write special machine code that will ensure the execution of all functions specified by the customer, configure the device and design the user interface.

Testing and optimization

When the prototype is ready, our specialists conduct a series of control tests to ensure that the device meets all the requirements of the technical specifications and is completely reliable. This includes testing for errors, testing interoperability with other devices if designed, and assessing usability. A testing stage in real working conditions is also possible, where nuances of work are revealed that cannot be detected in laboratory conditions. After this, changes are made to the program if necessary.


This completes the active development process. Over time, needs may change, so our team is always ready to make changes to the program, thus we make sure that our device is up-to-date and its functionality meets modern needs and market trends.

This story is not just about creating a device, it is about turning an idea into reality, requiring close collaboration between professionals sharing the common goal of creating something new and useful.
