Engineering Outsourcing: Why Your Company Could Benefit From It

by | May 23, 2022 | Technology | 0 comments

What problems can companies experience that are trying to design everything in-house? Not taking advantage of outsourcing parts of their engineering developments?

Engineering outsourcing can be a problem for companies when they try to design everything in-house A common issue is that engineers don’t have the know-how or the skillset and they cannot find a solution. Additionally, it’s hard for companies to find the best qualified partner and solutions. Also, having in-house engineering is very costly. So, companies don’t even have specified high-skilled engineers in-house.

What are the disadvantages of not outsourcing engineering design and the development?

Major disadvantages are clear when it comes to engineering knowledge or skillset. Companies may not even have that skillset. Or, it’s hard for companies to find the most qualified engineering partner/solution. Additionally, it’s hard to have in-house engineering teams for companies. It is very costly, which they cannot afford, unfortunately.

For example

A company needs an IP67 requirement. But, in their history they have had no experience or challenge to design an IP67 compliant system. In such cases trial and error is an option that may be very costly, lengthy, and may end up in failure. Or, you can work with an engineering house or a manufacturer. That provides value added engineering, that has:
done this dozens of times,
delivered exactly what you needed,
delivered in the shortest possible time,
the best price possible.

How does iConn solve this problem?

We solve this problem by pre-screening the project documents our customers give us. This is because there’s several possible outcomes to do so. First of all, there could be a lack of documentation or insufficiency in the product design. Thus meaning, is it even manufacturable? And iConn’s goal is to help point the customer in the right direction. One that finds a solution that brings their product to market.
