Considering the pressing business needs, the need to tap external expertise in the core business practices is mechanical engineering is eminent. Many manufacturing companies have realized significant cost saving; the fact that encourages more and more companies to sign up outsourcing engagements.

The pain points: how outsourcing could help

Before you even begin thinking of outsourcing your engineering processes, product development etc. you need to spend considerable time with your prospective customers, to understand not only their manufacturing needs, but their obstacles as well.

Following are some of the key pain points, and how outsourcing can help overcome these difficulties:

  1. Hiring the right talent at the right price is perhaps the largest costs related to any business. If your production needs increase, a right outsourcing partner can respond much faster than you could as the OEM; outsourcing takes the responsibility and challenge of staffing out of your hand and a manufacturer.
  2. The right outsourcing partner will provide you the flexibility to move some or all production offsite in turn allowing you to focus on research, design and innovation. If you want to grow in a shorter span, you need to focus on what you do best and move some tasks offsite. Your engineers can then spend more time in product development and quality checks that is so critical for the success of your business.
  3. In an engineering setup, many things can impact the ability to meet time-to-market demands. For example, some engineers may not understand the full impact of their design decisions on cost, turnaround and the supply chain. A good outsourcing partner will provide solutions to improve processes and get you to the market faster. Your partner will have a team that does nothing but keep abreast of material and process innovations, and have established relationships with suppliers.
