| IES Laboratory for Engineering Tests and Validations
Sir C V Raman Center for Engineering Tests and Validation is a fully-equipped laboratory with a dedicated wing for embedded solutions. The objective of the laboratory is to strengthen and benchmark our capability in validating designs. Functional and reliability tests are conducted to meet the design requirements of the products on specially built prototypes. This gives Mahindra Satyam Associates an opportunity to understand the fundamental concepts related to product and systems.
The IES lab, with an area of 6000 sq. feet, is equipped with Environmental Chamber for thermal and cold testing, Pneumatic compressor (10 HP), Pneumatic and Hydraulic kit, Strain gauge setup, Air Blower Test Rig, Data logging equipments, Measuring instruments, Tear down facilities, Drilling and Welding machines and general purpose tools .
Typical activities carried out at IES Laboratory include:
Validating design assumptions / calculations
Associates perform theoretical calculations by considering certain assumptions while designing the parts. They validate the designs against theoretical calculations with the help of prototype parts.
Validating design feasibility
Associates design the components and build the prototype parts with the help of local suppliers. They validate designs with the help of different test setups & equipments such as thermal chamber, environmental chamber, dial indicators, force gauges and strain gauges.
Building reliability testing fixtures with the help of local suppliers and performing reliability life testing for various types of components. Till date we have built 40+ reliability fixtures.
Tear down activity
Tear down activity for comparing the competitor’s models to understand the system and for value engineering.
Fluid mechanics studies
Perform the experimental flow analysis on small models using wind tunnel test rig. Measure the performance of the compressor under various operating conditions. Predict the performance of the blower with backward/forward and radial vanes.
The Embedded Laboratory is fully equipped to cater to the needs of the embedded and automation domains. One can simulate here the real life conditions, in order to test the features, functionalities and performance of application before implementing at site. It has various design, development and debugging tools to carry out embedded development which involves hardware design from concept to prototype, HMI design, firmware development, V &V.
On the process automation side, it is equipped with various process automation hardware - Programmable Logic Controller, Data Acquisition System, Software such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, Historians, OPC, Process modeling and simulation tools (discrete event simulation).
The IES laboratory act as a catalyst to bring up for advanced solutions, product/idea development and competency expansion.

|Technical Advisory Board
| Mahindra Satyam’s Technical Advisory Board comprises distinguished members representing various industries with a very high level of expertise in all the segments that have strong relationship to Mahindra Satyam competencies. Our Advisory Board suggests on industry specific roadmaps and future developments, assessment of technology options, and development of new products.
| Office of Chief Engineer (OCE)
| The Office of Chief Engineer (OCE) is established within the IES to support certain key functions to enhance the effectiveness and the technical quality of the engineering services provided. It operates through scores of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
The primary function of the OCE is threefold:
The standard processes give guidelines to implement projects covering Change Process, Value Engineering, Reliability, Design Studies, CAE, Safety, Risk Assessment, Six Sigma, DFSS, Lean Process, Green and the likes.
- Establish industry standard IES processes
- Conduct periodic technical reviews of projects
- Furnish technology support to the teams
The technical review of the projects ensures cross-checking of SOW/scope, Data, Assumptions, Approach, Formulation/model, Result, Conclusions, Validation, Documentation, Certification req. etc.
The Technology Support is offered in terms of Mentoring Teams, Developing COEs, conducting training in special topics in Engineering, Developing Engineering Data Base/ Tips, Conducting/Participating Seminars, Enforcing Academy Interactions, Promoting Sponsored Research, Thinking Innovation, Promoting Organizational and Individual Accreditation.
These functions are executed through a crew of SMEs, each one covering a distinct engineering discipline. A typical SME has over 15 years of industry experience and absolute familiarity over IES functions.

Reduce Time to Market
Delays—whether from economic downturn, geopolitical problems, or other reasons—equal lost opportunity and revenue. We understand the importance of giving wings to ideas and work towards reducing time-to-market.
Our expertise in Engineering and PLM, along with our Global Delivery RightSourcing™ Model, help A&D companies quickly bring concepts from design to manufacturing. We thoroughly evaluate new products or components for technical feasibility, in a process that includes a review of conceptualization, design, prototyping, and commercialization. We apply a wide spectrum of engineering services in CAD, CAM, CAE, PDM, and customization.
Our service portfolio includes end-to-end PLM implementation services that encompass Process Consulting, PLM System Selection, Product Configuration, BOM, Product Release Management, and Change Management, as well as PLM integration with other enterprise systems, and Product Support and Maintenance.
Enhance MRO Process Efficiency
To ensure streamlined MRO, we leverage an experienced Repair and Development Engineering (RDE) team, which features hands-on experience in line maintenance, structural repairs, power plant repairs, and operational and functional checks of aircraft systems. We help clients:
- Develop new repairs for engine/airframe components beyond repair manuals
- Develop new repairs for new commercial aircraft programs and new commercial engines programs
- Assess damaged part reports for faster return to service
- Analyze damage tolerance, static, and stress for critical flight safety parts and sub-assemblies with FMEA and FTA
- Manage design changes or modifications to parts/components experiencing repetitive failures in service/operation
- Update repairs in repair manuals
- Check for repair applicability of existing part numbers
- Update repair applicability for new part numbers introduced
Think“Enterprise” – Leverage Information
Successful organizations in the A&D space represent models of collaborative design, manufacturing, supply chain, and process excellence. Their success depends largely on their ability to leverage technology that enables collaborative business models.
We understand the need for a solid transactional backbone (ERP) to enable greater visibility into global spending and to aggregate demand to best suppliers. We have a large and talented pool of professionals, comprising the right mix of domain experts, functional & technical consultants. These professionals optimize ERP and EAI solutions to help integrate business processes across the entire organization. We offer:
- SCM services that ensure demand generation and fulfillment cycles
- CRM services that maximize sales, improve service efficiencies, and enhance customer loyalty
