Innovators, SMEs and even large OEMs may not always have the in-house design resources to meet workload demands or have the specialist expertise and design tools required for a particular project. In many cases the most efficient and cost effective response to such circumstances is to outsource the design requirement. Outsourcing a design or even part of a design can free up customer’s own resources to continue with existing projects.
