Cognetix IDR Overview


“Cognetix principals have first hand experience in translating complex concepts into practical, cost effective and reliable designs. It takes professionals with this type of successful track record …”
—Cesar M. Garcia, CEO, Iris Diagnostics

“When internal personnel are not available, Cognetix Engineering’s technical expertise is valuable, and sometimes critical.”
—Michael Vaughan, Sr. Manager of Product Engineering, Advanced Bionics

The cost of fixing errors increases exponentially the later they are detected in the development and production lifecycles. Cognetix Engineering conducts highly detailed design reviews that inevitably lead to significant cost and time savings by reducing the number of design iterations in a typical design/engineering project.
