Concept to production quality specialists. Prairiefire helps design products that perform correctly and consistently in the real world, despite environmental fluctuations or variation during manufacturing. We do this through Sensitivity-Based Design and Analysis, finding and treating the causes of performance variation rather than just the symptoms. We also offer training in the tools and techniques we use most often to bring the value back to engineering. We bring this expertise - usually only found in the largest of manufacturing companies - to all engineers, designers, and manufacturers.

From Our Website

Prairiefire was founded by engineers to provide consulting, application, and education services. We have over 20 years of experience applying Sensitivity-Based Design. The Sensitivity-Based Design process focuses on product and process quality, ensuring functional requirements and supplier capabilities are captured at every level, from concept through manufacturing. We call our process Sensitivity-Based Design and not Sensitivity Analysis as we go the extra steps to ensure that the efforts of analysis make it into the design, prints, and manufacturing processes.
