Qsigma Associates was founded in July 2001 in Orlando, Florida by Michael A. Tharp P.E. The company consists of a small group of senior engineers who provide turn-key engineering design and analysis solutions to commercial technology firms in Florida. Our clients recognize the advantages of outsourcing engineering labor. Outsourcing engineering labor saves the smaller company the cost of recruiting, training,
staffing, overhead, and retention of full time engineering employees with the special skill set of the Qsigma staff. Qsigma
engineers average 15 years of industry experience and use the latest software tools for 3D CAD, CFD (Computational Fluid
Dynamics), and FEA (Finite Element Analysis). Our engineers can help you meet your product roll out schedule and cost budget.
Our specialty is meeting the mechanical packaging, mechanical hardware analysis, and environmental specifications of electronic
products. We will help you meet or exceed customer driven or regulatory agency driven requirements. If your company's electronic product over heats or breaks during shipment due to shock and vibration the reputation of your company can be damaged in the eyes of your customer. Equipment returns and warranty work due to poor mechanical design and reliability can directly impact a company's
revenue and reputation. Unfortunately many companies wait until problems are found in a product design after expensive tooling
charges have been paid. Qsigma Associates prefers to perform analysis and design performance studies prior to the customer
committing to expensive tooling charges for castings. Qsigma Associates will help you optimize your mechanical hardware to insure
a quality product that meets performance and functional requirements as well as material and assembly cost goals. We wish to
provide your company personal service and a quality job that is completed to your satisfaction.
