Feasibility & Design Specification

Feasibility studies and design specifications

We take our lead from the customer before we start any work and the first step of that can often be a feasibility study, trial, or proof of concept. Some of our customers want to be in control of this process and provide the specifications, but many want to use InControl Systems to develop this part of the project for them before they sign it off.

The User Requirements Specification (URS) defines exactly what you expect to see from the system, how you interact with it, and how it functions.

Control & Automation system design consultants help you define the outcomes:

By taking a planned approach to the project, customers can choose at what stage to engage with us:

  • Step 1 – Feasibility study or Proof of Concept (PoC)
  • Step 2 – User Requirement Specification (URS)
  • Step 3 – Functional Design Specification (FDS)

Structured control system design:

We can guide you through each step in the process, considering such matters as long-term objectives, future-proofing, and the ‘art of the possible’.

At InControl, we develop your FDS in a structured, modular format, just like the software that we program directly from it. This gives you an exact manual of all systems for ease of reference, testing, maintenance, and updating. It’s all covered, from requirements of your hardware through to any PLC software, visualisations, and line of business systems integration.
