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.

Malcolm Locke, Managing Director of LDD Technology, comments, “Customers sometimes underestimate the complexity of a new project and find themselves running out of time or even ideas to complete a new design. Or they might come to us with just an idea which we can usually realise into an end product. We try to work with our customers in a way that means we are involved early to ensure a more elegant and better end product.”
