To innovate involves recognizing an opportunity that no one else sees, and creating a
solution to exploit that opportunity. For this, it's critical to have a sound
understanding of how things work now, and be able to identify the pitfalls, before
proposing a solution to address the problem. At CCE, we live by this doctrine.
That is how we recognized the challenges one of our customers was facing in transforming
their legacy product line to "smart" products. Using our knowledge of
product design, IoT and embedded systems, we created a working prototype of a fully
functional IoT-enabled product to serve as a roadmap for their smart product strategy.
We work with the best engineers on the planet. Period. It's a challenge, but over the years
we have been very
successful at hiring and retaining great talent! But as we often remind
ourselves at CCE, "with great talent, comes great responsibility". We hire the best
engineering minds and throw challenges at them that push their innovative minds to the
Our engineers are encouraged to work on creative ideas of their interest and tinker with
prototypes in our Innovation Lab. Some ideas are successful, most are not. But isn't that
what true innovation is? Like the famous saying goes "If you're not failing, you're not
trying hard enough".
In keeping with industry trends, and competitive pressure, our customer, a major windows and
doors manufacturer based in the US Midwest, was mulling over options to create a smart
product strategy for their legacy product line.
CCE created a scaled prototype of a fully-operational sliding door that could be actuated
(open/close) with other smart features based on an IoT-enabled mechanism. The goal
use this prototype to create a roadmap for our customer to create smart doors and windows.

CCE successfully designed and built a working prototype of a product named Quidli that
automatically produces idlis, a breakfast staple consumed by most of South India.
Idlis are produced by a conventional process that is time consuming, inefficient and wastes
water and energy.
Quidli is much more efficient than the conventional process as it is
Our relentless pursuit of seeking out problems and then figuring out innovative ways to
them is what sets us apart from other companies. We go well beyond just traditional
"services" and focus our energies on identifying problems and providing innovative
CCE has years of product design and Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE) experience using
CATIA, NX, SOLIDWORKS, Creo and Inventor. We have successfully completed several engineering
outsourcing projects for our customers from different industries. Some examples of our
product design include:
Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE): A Design and Outsourcing Case
SolidWorks Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE): A Design Optimization Outsourcing Case Study
NX Product Design and Development (NPD): A Design and Outsourcing Case Study
But, while NPD is driven by creativity, like all creative pursuits it needs to be managed
proven processes. Without this discipline, projects keep running without any
outcomes for long periods of time. We have been in business long enough to know that there
is a method to this, without which your new product development initiatives are likely to
Our technology background affords us unique advantages over our competition. We leverage the
synergy between co-located software and engineering teams to address issues that are so
prevalent between collaborators working remotely on engineering product development.
CCE has developed a web-based Work Order Management System, PowerLink to provide total
visibility and accountability of your projects. By facilitating reliable and secure
