The article reports on the well-defined automation project process of Concept Systems Inc. It mentions the process of the project which starts at the proposal development stage which allows client to get a budgetary proposal for a system without requiring a complete design. It also discusses the process of explaining customers for design plan implementation, construction drawing package, and the assemble stage of the project as well as the acceptance testing of the system by the client.
