From Prototype to Volume Production

Manufacturing by Customer

SCHMID mme strongly supports customers or their contract manufacturers in industrializing their engineering projects.

Throughout the NPI process, a dedicated contact at SCHMID rests at the disposal of the manufacturing plant for any enquiries they may have.
Support ranges from prototypes or pilot series to procurement of components and test tools engineering.

Manufacturing data supplied by SCHMID mme features a high level of quality and compatibility to automated assembly processes and can be exported in a variety of formats.

Volume production steering

SCHMID mme can, upon request, steer volume production and manage the whole product life cycle.

This way, changes in component availability can be addressed, component alternatives can be evaluated, as well as product change and discontinuation notices.

Manufacturing by SCHMID

Customers may elect to have their devices delivered by SCHMID mme.

If so, SCHMID will arrange manufacturing with their contract manufacturers and deliver functionally tested devices, complete with all accessories, to the customer.

All contract manufacturers are certified according to ISO 9001 quality management, ISO 14001 environmental management, and ISO 50001 energy management.


The functional prototype is ready and has been approved.


The device is submitted to certification according to the standards adhered to in product development.


In order to account for lead times, procurement of quantities required for volume production starts.

Test equipment engineering

All test equipment required for volume production, hardware and software, is being engineered.
Test processes are being defined.

Pre-production run

Manufacturing data is imported to the manufacturing line.

A small lot of devices is being manufactured to verify processes and test equipment.

Optimize processes and tools if required.

Pilot run

First devices being manufactured und volume production conditions.

Last chance to adjust manufacturing processes and parameters.
