Call on us in any phase

of the innovation process

We manage technological innovations. We design, develop,
modify, improve, implement and evaluate integrated systems
of people, knowledge, process techniques, equipment, energy,
materials, components and processes.

Some of our activities
- relocating production departments
- developing and implementing separation processes
- upgrading control installations
- migrating industrial automation platforms
- developing injection mould and handling techniques
- innovating automated assembly lines

Cases, designs, implementations and start-ups
We supervise both entire technical projects and separate
aspects, so we can be called upon in any phase of the
innovation process: the business case, concept design,
basic design, implementation and start-up.

Business cases

To start a project or not

The most important phase of a project is of course the one with the most managerial line of approach: writing the business case. We do this very regularly and so can pride ourselves of having lots of relevant knowledge and experience in this area.

All aspects considered

Aspects that can be relevant in a business case always include the savings and an estimate of the budget required. Because we have both the technology and the techniques in house, we can also advise how and where a product can best me made.

To start a project or not
The business case is used as the basis for deciding whether to start an innovative implementation process or not. The objectives are defined, various options identified and selection criteria described. On this basis follows a go or no go for starting a concept design study.

Concept and Basic designs

Orientation, consideration and selection

If the business case is promising, a concept design study takes place. This investigates what possibilities there are for reaching the objective described in the business case. The most attractive option is then developed in a basic design study.

The basic design
Using the concept design as a basis, the most favourable option is chosen, which is then worked out in detail in the next phase: the basic design study, where we refine things further. The basic design serves as a basis for implementing the process.

The concept design
A multitude of questions are answered in the concept design. What should the factory look like? Which technologies can be used? What legislation is applicable? Attention is also paid to budgetary and planning aspects. We present findings in a clear report.


Innovation in the pipeline

The implementation of the project is started using the basic design as a foundation. This is the construction phase: after the various components have been assigned, the project takes shape. Our client’s wishes are of course taken into account as much as possible.

Safety first
Safety always comes first in the construction of an installation. This safety is not only very important from a legal point of view, but also with regard to public image. It goes without saying that our people have all the knowledge and experience required for the construction phase to be a success with no accidents.

Hygiene and cleanliness
In the food & beverage and dairy industries, it’s vitally important that the installations are hygienic and can be cleaned properly. We naturally ensure that the result satisfies these requirements, so that health risks are limited to an absolute minimum.


Preparing for production

In this phase, also known as ‘commissioning and start-up’, the constructed installation is tested and made ready for production. Our process technologists supervise this start-up phase using a ‘commissioning and start-up plan’.

C&S Management

Even though we can supervise every start-up to perfection, we do not offer C&S management as a separate service, as such. This is however purely a question of interpretation and definition; after all, we use the process technologist to fulfil the role of commissioning and start-up manager.

Delivering the goods
This is the most exciting phase of the innovation process: everything that is conceived and worked out in the business plan must be delivered. We use the process technologist who conceived the original process to fulfil the role of commissioning and start-up manager.

The ideal partner
in technological innovations

Technological innovations are very important in business and production processes, and so need to be developed and implemented with extreme precision. This makes Synamic the ideal partner.


What went well and what could be better

After any issues in the start-up phase have been ironed out and the realised installation has been fully integrated in the production process, the whole innovation process – from business case to start-up – is thoroughly evaluated.

Evaluation report
The findings are discussed in a team meeting, so that an evaluation report can be drawn up and sent to the client. The client can then use this to inform other project teams, so that lessons learned are not lost.

Evaluation survey
The evaluation starts with an evaluation form – filled in by every team member involved – to investigate what went well during the project and what could be better. This looks in particular at the organisational aspects of the process.
