Systems Integration, Revolutionized

Modeled after agile software development, Ship in Six breaks down complex, long-term projects into achievable, incremental steps — where challenges are addressed individually and sequentially. Each sprint is a six-week commitment — with an engineering team and flexible scope configured specifically to produce a shippable, finished version of the product or feature in the short-term. The result is a higher success rate, greater cost efficiency, and revolutionary machine outcomes.

Why Ship in Six

Fixed-bid contracts often result in overblown but incorrect specs, unnecessarily large safety nets, and assumptive solutions that shoehorn into the original budget — or worse, endless change orders that offer little flexibility to innovate. Instead, the six-week sprint completely changes the way we approach our work, greatly reducing the cost and risk of each step. Each sprint commits a fixed number of engineering weeks against a flexible, best-effort scope. What does that mean for you?

  • A shippable version of the product or feature in the near-immediate future
  • Reduced barrier to entry
  • Predictable cost, with low risk of scope creep
  • Greater efficiency in time, energy, and investment
  • More innovative and revolutionary machine outcomes

METHODOLOGY

Ship in Six

When it comes to product development, it’s no secret that the only certainty is uncertainty, and change the only constant. Rather than shying away from this fundamental truth, in our years working in automation we’ve found a way to embrace it. We call it Ship in Six.
