It’s Not Easy For Manufacturers To Maintain A Traditional Model Of In-house Engineering
Manufacturers are experiencing reduced headcounts and tighter capital budgets and typically are faced with one of two scenarios:
- The demands of project definition and execution further overwhelm in-house engineers already swamped with constant support calls.
- Business constraints make it impossible for a company to sustain dedicated, in-house engineering.
As a result, the project focus disappears; upgrades, improvements, and maintenance are perpetually delayed; efficiency never improves; technology levels fall further behind current levels and the end outcome is that innovation vanishes
