WAY OF WORKING
Phase 1 of the V-model mainly translates the customer’s product requirements, wishes and conditions into the correct system architecture.
What distinguishes MTA from traditional system suppliers? We connect product and production development in our unique V² model. Product and production design are developed in parallel.

We are constantly working to coordinate both during the development process. Result: substantially shorter lead times and lower product costs in series.
CPO and Production Architect
Richard has over 20 years of proven track record in the high-tech industry. As Chief Technology Officer and system architect, he knows how to realize complex OEM projects.
Sjaak has over 30 years of experience in production and optimal system realization. As Chief Production Officer and production architect, he is the driving force behind our V² model.
Richard: “Traditionally, phase 1 of the V-model primarily translates the technical customer wishes and conditions into the correct system architecture.
The business case is often not sufficiently taken into account here. Ultimately, it must be crystal clear. For example, considerations related to manufacturability and maintenance are often not sufficiently taken into account at the start of the project.
This includes being able to test a system, working with modules, as well as standardizing and checking quality.
In the V² model, we incorporate these considerations into the architectural design and explicitly look at which production techniques best match the intended series production size.”
SUMMARY PHASE 1
Way of working
This way of working requires early involvement of our assembly department and the Supply Chain.
Sjaak: “How do we achieve controlled production as quickly as possible? It is important to build a system from modules and units, which can be assembled in a sequence of logical and predictable steps.
It must also be determined whether specific tooling is required to ensure that modules and components can be individually tested at an early stage.
In short: it requires a completely integrated way of working and an organization geared to that.”
“Right at the start of our V² model, we will critically reflect on the product and production philosophy in collaboration with our customer to achieve an effective system realization where the customer’s business case is optimized.
This allows us to produce the requested product volumes at the required quality level, at the right price and at the requested time,” concludes Richard.
