Software Development Process


Free quotation

At CBM-Logix we have always preferred to provide free, fixed-price quotations, to prevent any nasty surprises for our customers. Following any initial enquiry and depending on the size and scope of the project, we also like to have an initial meeting to discuss the work and gather the information we need to provide a quotation that suits all parties.

Detailed survey, design, build and test

Upon receipt of an order and commencement of a project, we like to carry out a detailed site survey to confirm project scope, check installation locations, collect relevant drawings and software, and just get a feel for the job to be done. This often shows up things that are trivial when addressed early on, but which could cause headaches at installation time. The design, building and testing of anything in a project is an iterative process, repeated several times to ensure we reach a robust final design and product. Initial designs will lead to a prototype, which is built and tested to identify areas for improvement. Software design follows a similar philosophy, with regular simulation of new code during the writing process enabling errors to be trapped and rectified. Regardless of the project, we encourage the customer to witness any final testing if appropriate, to spot final issues and gain confidence in a swift and smooth installation.

Installation and commissioning

By the time we reach the installation and commissioning phase of a project, we like to be confident in our solution, backed up by extensive development testing. We pride ourselves in a high standard of work, ensuring tidy installations and a clean and safe working area. We understand the fast-moving consumer goods industry and as such, always work to minimise downtime for the customer, whether that is by extensive preparation work ahead of any shutdowns or fitting the work in to least disrupt the customer. Successful commissioning is key to customer confidence, and at CBM-Logix we will never walk away from a project or invoice it fully until the customer is satisfied, however long that may take.

Ongoing support

Despite our best efforts, sometimes issues will crop up following a project completion. That doesn’t mean we ignore them; we will continue to work with the customer to resolve any problems and ensure continued satisfaction with and confidence in the supplied solution. In addition to face-to-face support, we can also supply remote access solutions, which can be separate from customer networks if required, but which allow us to connect remotely to enable rapid diagnosis and troubleshooting of a problem.
