Engineering Services Evaluation and Selection for Indian Global Service Providers

This guide will help organizations select the best engineering services supplier based in India for their business requirements.


​The growing need for being considered as a strategic partner in engineering services (designing, prototyping, production, and after-sales activities) make the segment more attractive for customers. End users recognize GSPs as valued engineering partners, who assist them in problem solving.

This publication contains guidance, functional descriptions, user practices, specific selection criteria, and supplier profiles to help team members find common ground with lower risk and faster time to benefit.

End users need engineering services for differentiated products, faster time-to-market, automation, and maintenance related services.  In addition, strategic roles like co-innovation and joint development projects, which are based on a risk sharing model, have evolved the role of an engineering service provider to a trusted partner and advisor.  Also, new technologies like IoT, sustainability, analytics, and IT/OT integration have been key in selecting suppliers. 

Strategic Issues
End users face significant issues related to the outsourcing of engineering services.  The selection guide explores user objectives, business justification, application scope, selection criteria, and helps answer key questions, such as:

  • Which suppliers have success in your industry?
  • What are the best practices of other engineering service users?
