Business challenges


  • Find a reliable engineering vendor who was capable of architecturing cost efficient engineering solution
  • Could build an enterprise-level Spray Cannon System.

The Spray Cannon team faced three key business challenges.


Understanding functional requirment based on use case.


Testing real world use case.

Product scope

Build a holistic solution that

  • While building the product, the client wanted to accomplish two objective.
  • Enable functional dust supression.
  • Material sourcing.
  • Installation in field & testing.
  • Curated vendor for all components.

Create field tested results to prove functionality of the atomizer.

Create a in field testing: containing:

  • In field users
  • Machine operations

Project details

Product discovery

To ensure the scope of the project was aligned with business values, we divided the discovery phase into three stages

Analysis. Define business requirements, determine the product’s market positioning, analyze the product architecture, and elicit the best technical solutions.

Design. Create a product vision and roadmap and build an architectural design in line with business goals.

Requirements. Formalize the product vision into the project scope for the development team and perform initial project setup.

Managing several groups of stakeholders

This project requires us to work with different groups of stakeholders who contribute to the project backlog

To align the processing of stakeholders’ input, we:

Ensuring quick team scaling

During five years of our collaboration, there were several times when we had to quickly scale the project team. The last time, we had just a couple of weeks to scale the team from 12 to 30 people.

  • rebuilt the management structure and implemented partially independent domain pods for specific project units
  • embedded a new structure of technical leadership

  • assigned a dedicated resource manager who knew the project context
  • established an onboarding process that included learning the project documentation, workshops conducted by BAs and QAs, and mentoring by tech leads.

Developing the full module from scratch in rapid speed

We were in the middle of building the core Spray Cannon functionality we had been held back due to procurmend delays. In addition to the ongoing core development, the client asked us to create rapid prototypes for smaller components that were used in production.

We managed to build these within two weeks that effectively replaced many production parts while they were still under delivery from vendors.

Simple UX for a complex product

Due to Spray Cannon specifics, we had to make complex functionality clear, intuitive, and user-friendly for people on the ground, people with disabilities, and different age groups. The Spray Cannon includes many user roles, and we made the UX comfortable for all users

  • building a consistent information architecture that’s scalable enough to allow for future implementations
  • adapting the design to the needs of users in different age groups
  • making the system convenient for people with disabilities
  • ensuring outdoor usability and accessibility.

Simplifying ops for a complex product

The client provided us with their existing workflow as a starting point with all the various operations that needed to be performed by the Spray cannon and we took to ensure all use cases were performed with ease.

Our task was to analyze the current workflow and add functionality that would significantly decrease the process complexity.

To imrove the process, we created models to visualize the future state and to model the sequence of events and the flow of information. Together with our business analyst, we designed and developed the corresponding functionality.

As a result, the complex process are set up with ease, the system automatically checks multiple parameters on startup with low human involvement. Now, the process of operating the cannon takes minutes instead of the hour or so that it took before.

Thanks to the results of our collaboration, we vastly improved the Spray Cannon system

  • Increased in effectiveness of the water spray system that enables better dust supression
  • Decrease in water and power consumption with better performance in various real world conditions

  • The entire machine is more robust and reduction in services
  • Faster production time for a new Spray cannon with ease in full procurment
