To reduce the headcount of people in an organization is essential if the business is modeled to focus on its core competencies and swing away from hands on engineering. Engineering outsourcing does not mean getting rid of the business engineers but limiting outsourcing to non essential jobs and retaining your talented engineers in coming up of new innovations for the firm.
Engineering outsourcing are those transactional functions that are repetitive in nature and involves writing skills. Having to engineer outsource is to allow a company to focus on project management, process engineering and technology integration. One of the reasons as well is to fill in gaps of expertise and be able to meet fast track schedules.
Engineering Outsourcing calls for services that include aerospace design, construction, pharmaceuticals, automotive design and industrial machinery products. As customers become demanding, companies would have to compete with each other to win customer s satisfaction.
To outsource engineering services, the company should see to it that the outsourcer could provide high quality engineering services and its employees are highly qualified professionals to perform the work. Some of the engineering services should have specialization in the field of Structural, Mechanical & Electronic Engineering – analysis and design, embedded software, Plant Design, Process Engineering, Plant Automation Services and Enterprise Asset Management and OEM solutions.
Engineering outsourcing is acquiring a momentum, in as much as it deals with labor-intensive engineering processes (structural drafting and detailing, conversion services, cost estimations and a lot more). It assures businesses of a quick turnaround time, good price competition, and its ability to customize the software based on the project management itself.
