Design and Prototyping

Designing and Prototyping process at SIC

In partnership with our clients and procurement group, our engineering project managers can turn your design drawings or samples, into manufactured products.

Data can be received electronically or more traditionally, through hard copy. Prototypes can then be produced with the minimum of delay and with a guarantee of manufacturability.

At SIC this is a consultative process and an assembly being built for the first time is rigorously checked and evaluated for the application feasibility in which it will be used and often our team will find time, cost or quality enhancing alternatives during this process. We’ll pass such insights on to our customers, who can then make an informed choice about their products’ manufacture.

All prototypes or samples are dispatched with either an Initial Sample Inspection Report (ISIR) or a Parts Submission Warrant (PSW) depending on the specific requirements of the customer and the market sector they are in. We do this so that we complete the customer feedback loop prior to sign off for manufacturing.

This requirement, in addition to our ISO9001:2008, ISO14001:2004, UL, NICEIC and IPC accreditation’s, is observed whether we are dealing with wiring harnesses, cable assemblies, control boxes or panel wiring.

Our Manufacturing Process


Our engineering team will always perform an initial design feasibility review of all enquiries submitted to us, along with any assembly drawings or bill of materials. This guarantees that we fully understand the product design requirements to ensure that the final assembly is fit for purpose.


Once we ensure that the design can be accurately and cost-effectively manufactured to the quality levels that we work to. Our engineering team will always perform a value analysis and will offer any value engineered solutions that will satisfy the project requirements highlighting areas of cost savings to your business.

Account Manager

We appoint a dedicated account manager to every enquiry we receive and they will identify the manufacturing scope of the project and what the project targets are in terms of delivery time and budgets. This initial discussion creates the framework for the project that can be referenced throughout the manufacturing process.


Once the manufacturing process has been agreed and signed off by yourself, we then begin manufacture of the product in line with our stringent company certifications (including ISO9001 & ISO14001) and UL, NICEIC & IPC industry regulations.


We design and produce our own in house testing equipment for all the items that we produce and provide 100% test capability. All of our electronic assemblies are tested in house, regardless of complexity through our bespoke testing equipment.


We offer you a choice of delivery method to suit your manufacturing process, whether it’s Direct Line Feed, KanBan, Just In Time or Consignment Stock Holding we can modify our delivery method to best suit our your needs.
