The CEL Structured Approach to Projects
CEL has a structured approach to manufacturing and project implementation which can be divided up into three distinct phases:
- Project Scope and Design
During this phase CEL will assign a Project Manager who will control the dedicated teams at different stages of the design and manufacture cycle.
CEL utilise various intelligent software tools to design our Switchgear and E-Houses.
- Bentley Promis.e Electrical Schematic Design Software.
- AutoCAD Electrical Design Software.
- The Electrical Software packages utilise various design rules to assist the Engineers in ensuring all designs follow international standards
AutoCAD Inventor Mechanical Design Software.
AutoCAD Inventor is used to create full 3D models for all Switchgear and E-House projects.
The 3D models allow the equipment to be fully modelled in the software prior to manufacture, enabling parts to be designed and ordered direct from the software.
- Lean Manufacturing
Our rigorous quality control policy assures high standards for our finished products. We have full testing facilities with modern test equipment and highly trained technical staff.
- Continuous Improvement
We maintain a policy of continuous improvement to our manufacturing processes therefore improving our efficiency and the quality of the finished products. We utilise ‘Capella’ as a management tool for managing all non-conformances and customer feedback through to full corrective action closure.
Post Project Service
All procedures and results are recorded to enable full trace-ability on all projects passing through the works.
