Project in electronic devices industry, if successful, comes from what the client wants and what the market expects. Between them springs up quality – the bridge between a company and its clients. Quality planning is then answering the question how to deliver what is in demand. But why does it take so much to plan this very process, especially in manufacturing electronic devices, and when to call quality enough?
Working as a Scrum Master comes very close to conducting a symphonic orchestra– it only seems like light and frivolous brandishing the baton. In fact, these merry swings only veneer an arduous endeavor followed by tons of knowledge and multitasking – do not look away from the harp, keep an eye on the piano, what are the strings doing?! It is, thus, enough for one person to conduct the development team, but what happens before one sits on the Scrum Master’s chair?
All you need to know about Scrum is that you plan, do, revise, repeat... Simple, is it not? Three roles in the management and five steps in task tackling - repeat. Repeat until you deliver the ultimate value to your client. It is so concise that even the Scrum Guide itself takes roughly two pages of the offhand writing. And yet, that apparent step-by-step simplicity still brings on too many perplexities to leave it undiscussed. Where, thus, lie pains of Scrum implementation and how to achieve quick wins in it?
Agility of projects in great portion depends on planning, short proceedings and updating the status with a huge space for people’s initiative who are engaged in work.

New technologies have changed our lives. They have. In many cases, they made them easier, more convenient and faster. Of all these things they will never forgive sluggishness, especially when you work in the connectivity industry. Once, a group of sharp minds converged and said enough to the inanity of corporate rusty administration machines hidden deep in companies’ corridors. That’s how agile was born – a mindset which assumes one thing: to act. And we tested some quick methods on how to do it.
What makes an electronic device great? Definitely a brainy guy by the steers, state-of-the-art lab equipment and, not so rarely, a project which allows for withstanding extreme conditions of the device’s environment. And the pressure of a few atmospheres or huge temperature amplitudes not always bring off such. Sometimes, 65 degrees Celsius is way enough for conditions to make them extreme.
Telco operators face many challenges these days. Their biggest nightmare is being unable to provide customers with high-speed services due to existing infrastructure. This case study outlines how we helped multiple-system operators solve this problem.

Data is becoming the new currency and its transfer from point A to point B should be performed in an effective (cost, speed, size) and above all secure manner. This case study presents how we designed and developed a prototype device that processes data in the cloud.
