Romax: Right First Time™
Designers, engineers and managers
usually work towards multiple and
often conflicting targets: improve
efficiency and durability, reduce
vibration and noise, make it lower
cost... This traditional linear iteration
process is too drawn-out and
inefficient to explore the entire
‘design envelope’ and optimize trade-
offs between these multiple criteria.
Romax has solved this conundrum:
applying multi-dimensional
optimization procedures to help you
achieve Right First TimeTM
design.
We can help you solve the business,
engineering and process challenges
that threaten to slow down
development, suck in resources and
increase your costs. With expert
people, industry know-how and
profound Intellectual Property
developed over 25 years as an
engineering specialist in gearbox,
bearings and drivelines, we deliver:
•	 Consulting - trusted advice and
practical problem-solving

“To stay profitable and competitive,
companies must introduce new and
improved products faster, and drive
down development costs. Design Right
First TimeTM
is the key. We can help you
re-engineer every phase of the process in
innovative ways, so you can compress the
time from concept design to engineering
sign-off by up to 60 percent.”
Dr Peter Poon MBE, Founder and President,
Romax Technology
What does Process
Improvement look like?
Design concepts usually emerge
from one group and are passed
to another for detailed design,
and yet another for analysis. Each
team uses a variety of tools to
create different models for design
and analysis: there is no common
product model and data set. This
inefficient approach inevitably leads
to errors, inconsistencies, omissions
and miscommunication - forcing
repetition and extended design
iterations, extending lead times and
creating higher costs.
Our approach is instead based
on creating a model that can be
shared by all computer-aided
design, analysis and computer-
aided engineering teams as
required, to enable the right skills
and disciplines – the right decisions
– to be taken at the right time in
the process. The Romax structured
methodology means you can:
• Harness what you already have:
design-know how, testing data,
and engineering skill
• Create a learning organization
that captures and documents
knowledge - and is regularly
replenished with lessons learned
from each project, testing and
field feedback
• Continuously refine the design
and development process as
your knowledge base expands
• Promote collaborative working,
enable more flexible resource
planning and reduce reliance on
limited resources
• Provide senior managers with
greater visibility and the ability
to focus on key strategic issues
at every stage: speed, quality,
functionality, dependencies,
manufacturability and cost
Making it happen
The Romax approach is elegant and
highly effective. A process audit
Review reveals how processes
work within your company, how
they link and interact. Depth of
Understanding means we can
identify genuine opportunities
for change aligned with your
culture, set-up and requirements:
each case is unique. We interview
stakeholder groups, and document
workflows to show what really takes
place in your workplace, as well as
analyzing potential risks, delays and
inefficiencies.
This helps us to Plan practical
and cost-effective solutions to the
issues you face, then Implement in
partnership with your own people
to ensure knowledge transfer
and instill best practice. In this
way, you can start embedding
Right First TimeTM
disciplines in your
design and development process.

  • 7. 7Solutions to drive business and sustainability “To stay profitable and competitive, companies must introduce new and improved products faster, and drive down development costs. Design Right First TimeTM is the key. We can help you re-engineer every phase of the process in innovative ways, so you can compress the time from concept design to engineering sign-off by up to 60 percent.” Dr Peter Poon MBE, Founder and President, Romax Technology
  • 8. What does Process Improvement look like? Design concepts usually emerge from one group and are passed to another for detailed design, and yet another for analysis. Each team uses a variety of tools to create different models for design and analysis: there is no common product model and data set. This inefficient approach inevitably leads to errors, inconsistencies, omissions and miscommunication - forcing repetition and extended design iterations, extending lead times and creating higher costs. Our approach is instead based on creating a model that can be shared by all computer-aided design, analysis and computer- aided engineering teams as required, to enable the right skills and disciplines – the right decisions – to be taken at the right time in the process. The Romax structured methodology means you can: • Harness what you already have: design-know how, testing data, and engineering skill • Create a learning organization that captures and documents knowledge - and is regularly replenished with lessons learned from each project, testing and field feedback • Continuously refine the design and development process as your knowledge base expands • Promote collaborative working, enable more flexible resource planning and reduce reliance on limited resources • Provide senior managers with greater visibility and the ability to focus on key strategic issues at every stage: speed, quality, functionality, dependencies, manufacturability and cost Making it happen The Romax approach is elegant and highly effective. A process audit Review reveals how processes work within your company, how they link and interact. Depth of Understanding means we can identify genuine opportunities for change aligned with your culture, set-up and requirements: each case is unique. We interview stakeholder groups, and document workflows to show what really takes place in your workplace, as well as analyzing potential risks, delays and inefficiencies. This helps us to Plan practical and cost-effective solutions to the issues you face, then Implement in partnership with your own people to ensure knowledge transfer and instill best practice. In this way, you can start embedding Right First TimeTM disciplines in your design and development process. The Romax approach is elegant and highly effective “We wanted to incorporate more advanced technology into our design and manufacturing processes... through working with Romax we will be able to improve our methods and designs of our new automotive gearboxes and greatly advance our capabilities.” Tsingshan 8 Romax: Right First TimeTM
