The "Design and Development as a Service" session at the recent ARC Advisory Group World Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida took a look at how the evolving workforce and highly competitive global market are impacting design, development, and manufacturing processes.
Facing no shortage of business and development challenges, manufacturers are searching for ways to remain competitive. As attendees learned at this Forum session, design services can often help manufacturers overcome at least some of these challenges by integrating the design-make-deliver process from end to end. The session explored the issue from a consumer product perspective as well as an industry solution perspective and found many commonalities between both. Whatever the reader's perspective, the basics of design services (and essentially all outsourced services) require the same foundation for success.
