Application Engineering

We define Application Engineering as all specific engineering, validation and client support required up to start of production plus a specified handover period (typically 90 days).

The size and scope of Application Engineering projects varies greatly according to Product Level and purpose. For example, a Level 1, stock product for demonstration purposes may require little or no application engineering. A Level 3, customised product provided to a vehicle OEM in series production would however require significant application activity. Our Validation Template allows you to obtain an initial assessment of recommended validation activities.

Purpose/quantity definitions

The production contract covers the supply of motors, inverters or integrated assemblies in volume. It typically comprises two parts, a Supply Agreement covering the commercial arrangements and the final specification to be supplied, and a Production/Batch Schedule.

For initial assessment we categorise the purpose for which products will be used.


Typically a small number of units to support a client proof of concept phase.

Small batch production

Used for many specialist applications, a single-make race series or special vehicles, for example.

Series production

Higher production volumes with end products typically sold to the public.
