Design is the life-blood of great OEMs. As more and more firms have outsourced their manufacturing, they have realized that their true differentiation in the marketplace is in their intellectual property (IP) and in their design capability. At the same time, budget realities have forced many firms to hold the line on engineering staff size or even to downsize their design group. This creates a need for outside design help.
Baselodge Group does not directly represent design firms, but we have worked with several outstanding firms over the years. We know who is good and who is not so good. We are happy to recommend someone once we understand your needs. Our design partners offer design support services to augment your design team. Whether your design team needs a few resources to bridge the gap on a current project or a stand alone design group to manage your project from end-to-end, we can help.
These designers are committed to protecting your IP, understanding your requirements, designing to your specifications, and interacting with you for design reviews throughout the design cycle. They are experts on design for manufacturability (DFM), design for test (DFT), and design for cost reduction.
