Transfer of Technology
The Transfer of Technology (ToT) philosophy of C-DOT aims at a high rate of success in the technology dissemination process. It aims at educating the recipients of various technologies not only on the infrastructural requirements and requisite know-how for production, but also at providing the licensed manufacturers with vital details about sources and specifications for the capital equipment and components.
The TOT Process
C-DOT provides extensive assistance in the form of documentation, training, prototype development and followup services as part of its ToT package. The ToT process can assume two distinct forms depending upon the mode of ToT agreed upon.
Subsequent to the signing of the agreement, C-DOT provides first level of training, following which the recipients set up their manufacturing infrastructure. Based on the technical assistance available from C-DOT, the recipients fabricate the production model and offer it to C-DOT for quality evaluation. After successful evaluation of the model, C-DOT recommends the manufacture’s infrastructure and the production model of the Quality Assurance testing wing of the customer for evaluation. The manufacturer, on acceptance, gets the type approval for bulk production.
C-DOT also has the capability to setup manufacturing facilities for its products on a turnkey basis. This approach expedites the setting up of manufacturing infrastructure and of bulk production by the manufacturer. After the setting up of the requisite infrastructure, the production model is offered by C-DOT for acceptance on behalf of the manufacturer. Once this is successfully achieved, C-DOT gradually withdraws its support and the manufacturer takes independent control of the operations.
The ToT Package
The technology transfer package consists of Design Documentation, Engineering Inputs, Testing & Validation Documents, Manufacturing Documents and User Documentation. Besides, C-DOT also provides training and technical assistance. Recipients of the technology overseas have the option to commence production with integration and testing of the finished systems, Semi Knocked Down (SKD) assembly or Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits.
C-DOT's greatest asset is the extensive knowledge base that it has acquired during the course of developing cost effective communication technologies. This results in saving on Capital expenditure and also on service satisfaction for our customers.
