Utilise external skills and experience to deliver your next development project on time and on budget

A full understanding of commercial demands, coupled with engineering expertise and many years experience running a manufacturing company, let me present a complete product development service. It begins with product concepts and encompasses functional specification, design process, design verification, standards approval and documentation. Manufacturing process requirements are overriding ensuring manufacturability is designed in from the outset giving a seamless introduction to production and top quality results.

Engagement models for outsourced engineering services

I place emphasis on delivering the right solutions for clients. These are some methodologies for outsourcing your electronic product development project.

  • Turnkey project deliveries: I arrange everything on behalf of the client and deliver a fully developed product solution, and manage the project through to delivery from manufacture.
  • Project management services: I manage the project for the client and provide technical leadership. This can be either on site at the client's premises or working with multi-discipline third party partners in multi-sites across the globe.
  • Outsourced development: I can take on specific parts of a product development, electronic design, or other engineering services in a consultancy capacity.
