Accelerated Product Development

Where did it start for you? Was there an "ah-ha" moment that led to some deliriously late nights and an impromptu back of the napkin drawing? Have months of long days and short nights finally led to the point where you're ready to take the step from concept to reality? Whether you're determined to beat the competition to market or want to finally put the "start" in start-up, our new product design and development team at Cascade Controls not only excels in the pressure situations that surround the launch of a new product; we thrive!

Take the path that leads from product design and development to working prototype and production with the help of the new product development team at Cascade Controls.

We all recognize the importance of time-to-market. However, many businesses make the mistake of underestimating just how imperative time really is in this equation! With time as a finite resource, our development team utilizes a collaborative approach to streamline your organization's most important resources into the rapid prototyping approach we use to design, procure, manufacture, and compliance test a new product to meet your launch date.

This system allows us to work in tandem to provide your client with the right product the first time, while also successfully minimizing the cost of ownership. This dynamic approach often allows us to see a much shorter cycle time when the product transitions from NPD to production manufacturing.

Manufacturing

Having the ability to establish a manufacturing relationship with our clients isn't simply a buyer-seller relationship; it's the formation of a partnership. Cascade Controls' manufacturing team, when aligned with design, supply chain, and quality management, offers our clients needed flexibility and ability to deliver the desired results on-time and to specification. No matter your production goal, whether a single prototype, a dozen units, or a few thousand, our manufacturing team welcomes the opportunity to demonstrate the difference we can make in helping meet your production demands on time and on budget.

If you're preparing for the next "ramp up" in your production cycle, our manufacturing team has the know-how and flexibility to provide the level of support you need in order to meet goals on time.

The manufacturing process acts as a hub where all collaboration comes together. Cascade Controls processes take a client-first approach with our commitment through design for manufacturing (DFM), technology enhancements, shortened cycle times, and scheduling metrics. The ability to adjust to new client requirements is supported and welcomed.

Our assembly and technician team ranks as a key component to our successful delivery of this service. Cascade Controls technician training program allows for continuing education, but also provides the ability to cross-train team members to allow for burst capacity on the manufacturing floor. An innovative approach, combined with flexible team capability, enables us to quickly pivot to meet manufacturing needs on a client-by-client basis.

Quality Control

An ISO:9001-2015 certified company, you will see quality in every aspect of the services we provide at Cascade Controls. Beginning at a client/project kickoff, where we jointly define scope to ensure our client requirements, through our manufacturing standards and practices, quality control and product monitoring is the common thread that runs throughout the entire production process. From supply chain traceability and FAT testing documentation to revision control and post-product support requirements, the quality control experts at Cascade Controls will document everything to minimize risk and eliminate ambiguity.

Providing a positive client experience through the use of closely monitored and refined quality control practices that help to ensure consistency and reliability in everything we make.

At Cascade Controls, we never underestimate the importance of quality control as a vital component in ensuring our clients receive products free from defects that meet their needs. When this process receives too little time and attention, consumers are put at risk, reputations are tarnished, and business is lost.

To prevent the loss of money and reputation that comes with product recalls, our quality control team tracks production metrics using statistical process control (SPC) systems that enable them to identify and solve problems before any product ever leaves our production facility. When supported by the right production maintenance and control tools, the majority of, if not all, defects can be successfully eliminated.

We expect and demand the same high-level of quality in all of the products we produce for our clients. That's why our quality control team remains dedicated to providing the attention to detail required to improve safety, increase quality, and satisfy our customers each and every time.

Aftermarket Support

Having the ability to establish a manufacturing relationship with our clients isn't simply a buyer-seller relationship, it's the formation of a partnership. Cascade Controls' manufacturing team, when aligned with design, supply chain, and quality management, offers our clients needed flexibility and ability to deliver the results they desired on-time and to specification. No matter your production goal, whether a single prototype, a dozen units, or a few thousand, our manufacturing team welcomes the opportunity to demonstrate the difference we can make in helping meet your production demands on time and on budget.

Meeting the needs of clients requires that every type of company transform itself into a service business. Unfortunately, many companies don’t fully understand exactly what it takes to effectively provide world class after-sales services.

That’s largely due to the fact that after-sales service is notoriously difficult to properly manage, especially for businesses short on the resources needed to properly execute this strategy.

While clients have high expectations for the products the purchase, they don’t expect perfection. However, when things breakdown or require service, they do expect manufacturers to provide quick and efficient support.

With the assistance of Cascade Controls' aftermarket support services, we can enable your business to become the calvary that quickly comes to the aid of its clients. From on-site troubleshooting to in-the-field upgrades, we have the ability to meet your clients evolving demands.

Satisfy your clients' expectations while improving business relations and sales. That's the kind of end-to-end performance that makes partnering with Cascade Controls a real difference maker to your bottom line.
