Needs Analysisstep by step consideration of systems requirements

01
What climate will your system be running in?
  • Will this system be deployed in a climate and temperature controlled environment?
  • Do you need to meet an IP or NEMA rating for dust and moisture protection?
  • Are rust, vibration, shock, high altitude, pressurize environment, or biological conditions a concern?
  • Is this an industrial or MIL-STD-810 project with additional unique environmental concerns?
What is the deployment location infrastructure like?
  • What are the options for mounting this system and what is the desired footprint area?
  • Will you need AC, DC, wide voltage DC, redundant, combination, switching or UPS power supply?
  • Would you like it to be a flex-mount design - one unit for all rackmount, wallmount and desktop deployments?
  • Do you need brackets for mounting upon an uneven surface or via DIN rail?
  • Will it need to mount in a commercially available weather proof box, equipment rack, or cabinet enclosure?
Are there any security and/or safety concerns?
  • Who is to have access to this system and how are the to interact with it?
  • Does it need to be a discreet system disguised from view?
  • Do you require security features such as tamper-proof screws, intrusion sensor, or a Kensington Lock?
  • Are vandals or accidental/intentional chassis intrusion concerns?
  • Is complete system theft or destruction a concern? (Ex: Security DVRs, Self-Service/Payment, etc.)
  • What CE safety and EMC immunity standards do you need to meet?

What operating system and software will you be using?
  • What operating system are you intent on using?
  • Do you require different distributions, licensing requirements, and client specific configuration requirements?
  • Do you have any special imaging or testing equipment?
  • Would you like Sliger to facilitate and host your testing infrastructure at our location?
Any x86 extension requirements?
  • What x86 extensions or on-board chipsets will your system require?

What are you performance criteria?
  • How intense is the processing, memory, storage R/W, and video load on this system?
  • Can you provide an example of an existing system or specification list?
  • What are your idle, load, and average power usage targets?
  • How much data storage capacity do you need?
Will your system utilize any peripherals?
  • Will your system have integrated ticket printers, barcode scanners, bill receivers, etc.?
  • Any other electronic parts such as speakers, touchmonitors, dot-matrix LCDs?
  • Will you be mounting other third party equipment inside the enclosure?
Which kind of I/O data interfaces and in what quantities?
  • What kind and how many external devices do you need to connect to this system?
  • Are there certain interfaces on your system you don't want end-users having access too?
  • Do you need full front panel and rear IO access or would select panel mount IOs be sufficient?
  • Do you need card slots and how many?
  • Will you be using any rugged military or custom IO form factors?

What are your manufacturing imperatives?
  • What per unit price targets do you need to meet at various quantities of manufacture?
  • What is your target launch date?
  • What regulatory compliance, testing, and certification do you need to meet?
  • Do you want to manage some aspects of the supply chain or prefer a turn-key solution?
  • Does your project require ISO 9001, ISO 13485, ISO 14001, IEC 61340-5-1 (ESD)?
What are your lifecycle needs?
  • Is this system replacing another already deployed in the field?
  • How long will this system need to be manufacturable and do you need revision control?
  • What lifecycle availability do you need to meet on all components?
  • Do you have a post-EOL support time frame that will need extended RMA coverage?
