If you have an idea or concept that you would like us to build or give your thoughts a practical shape or if you have some concerns about our capability in any way, Parijat will be glad to build it for your evaluation. In most cases, the POC is free. Parijat requests your positive interaction with us during the developmental phase &a honest feedback to make it a successful venture for both the partiesIt probably sounds intuitive, but the point of a POC is to prove the feasibility of a solution. Typically a POC is trying to answer questions similar to the ones below:
Will this technology meet our needs?
Will the ultimate solution be commercially & technically feasible?
How we create POC for current project/ application?
What is POC in Automation?
A POC stands for Proof of Concept. It is just a demo application with real displays points/tags, and graphics as required in an application. In Other words- It simply proves that we can develop a working application to suite requirements of your scope. Example – showing a display communicating with smart industrial device, PLC, data server, OPC server, etc.
What is the type of your application/project?
Answer is it can be a web-based application or a desktop application or mobile application or some other type of application. It can be setting up your application, test data, setup of tools, etc. When you have the working demo application then you can present it to your manager, lead, or client for next action.
Key benefitsGauge Implementation Feasibility - Deeper understanding of the solution requirements and implementation options validated in the real application environment early on before the start of the full-scale development
Identify Possible User needs and expectations - by demonstrating them the look and feel along with design usability and accessibility of the final product, unlike design documents and mockups.
Prioritize Requirements to avoid costly changes and budget overruns - Identify and eliminate problem areas in the future solution early, avoiding mistakes pile-up at the later full-fledged development stage and their costly fixes.
Pilot ProjectThe simplest way to think about a Pilot is “almost Production.” Getting to Pilot typically means the following have already been completed:
· Detailed Architectural Design based on an assessment of technical requirements
· Environment build and configuration
· Infrastructure testing to validate failover, high availability, and possibly scalability
· User testing and iterative feedback to optimize the user experience
· Documentation or training for pilot users and the help desk
What does a Pilot look like? It’s typically implemented in a phased approach over the period of time depending on the size of the deployment. It’s best to limit the size of the Pilot to fewer users. Additionally, a Pilot represents lower risk, but allows for the ability to roll back to the previous “way of doing things” if needed. As Pilot proceeds and is considered successful, the environment can be moved to Production and rolled out to the entire end user community.
