Project Management

Impulse has twenty years of experience working closely alongside our customers assisting them in meeting a fast time to market, whilst lowering the true cost of ownership of their products, services and projects.

In order to achieve this continued success, Impulse work closely with our customers in three main phases of a project or product life-cycle.

The Impulse Project Life-cycle

The initial phase of the project would normally consist of one or more of the Impulse Technical Sales team working closely with the customer to determine the exact brief for their application. ODM/OEM projects make up a large percentage of the project management here at Impulse, where it is our team’s responsibility to recommend, supply and integrate components into a final product.

There are a few factors that determine which products our Technical Sales Team will recommend for a project. Most importantly, our team must ensure that the product is compatible with the customer’s specification. This may seem self-evident, but there are many ways in which a component can affect an overall system:

  • Can other components in the overall system communicate with the product if necessary?
  • Does the component comply with the power consumption requirements?
  • Does the component comply with the temperature requirements?
  • Does the component need to have any special certification?
  • Does the component have adequate driver support?

Another key area the customer needs to be assured of is the life-cycle of the final product, and the expected longevity of the recommended product(s) that Impulse is proposing to the customer. It is very important that the life-cycle of the final product is maximised, thus reducing the overall cost of ownership of the project or product.


The key to a successful development phase is the close support that Impulse provides in the customers initial development cycle right through to the testing and debugging stages of the project.

Our experienced and qualified engineers provide many services through the development phase of a project:

This type of assistance throughout the development phase forms the basis of Impulse providing a complete service to our customers from initial conception right through to product supply.


In order to conform to the traditional tight schedules of our customers’ projects, Impulse provides a number of services and controls as part of the deployment phase.

Accurate bill of materials creation within our works order system coupled with efficient system integration build processes completed by our Microsoft certified engineers, on time and within the customers specification.

Supply chain management is a way of taking the hassle out of long-term procurement for a project. Instead of our customer having to contact many different sources for components, they can contact Impulse who will act as a mediator in procuring any necessary components for the customer’s project.

Call-off schedules are strictly adhered to, which allow our customers to designate their own calendar of deployment to suit their own production cycle. Our engineers follow this release schedule and ensure any development is completed and ready for deployment in advance of each milestone.

The normal life-cycle of a project in the industrial computing industry is around 5-7 years. Every step is controlled by Impulse to ensure complete continuity for our customers’ applications.

Obsolescence and revision control manage phase-out and product changes, and help with a smooth transition to a new platform. Product Change (PCN) and End of Life (EOL) notifications are a service that help Impulse customers prepare, up to 6 months in advance, for the phase-out of a component within their application.
