While it is certainly not a requirement to work with a mechanical design company in the same city as your business, it is helpful to work with a company that offers the full scope of services your business requires. For companies in and around San Diego and California, having a partner in the same time zone and within easy access for meetings can assist in streamlining the design and development process.
Not all mechanical design firms are the same. Many are geared to working with specific industry sectors with small companies focusing on a particular area of expertise. Larger companies may have teams that specialize in different areas, and these slightly larger firms offer some distinct advantages. They are small enough to give personalized service at the same time, allowing each client to have the level of support and involvement in the process that is right for their needs.
One of the key differentiating features between different mechanical design firms, even those focusing on the same industrial sectors, is the ability of the company to complete the tasks required on time and within the budget.
This is a crucial element to consider as delays, budget overruns and inexperience by the design firm can cost your company. Not only will it delay the ability to move from design to production but it can also create funding problems throughout the project.
Understanding Regulations and Industry Standards
Whether your new part, component or device will in used in the medical, energy to transportation fields, it is essential the mechanical design firms you are considering know all applicable regulations and requirements.
This experience and expertise will also be an advantage to your company as errors, oversights and omissions will be spotted by the San Diego mechanical firm, preventing weeks to months of having to rework projects to bring them into compliance.
