The contribution of the designer in the custom build engineering company

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A large number of engineering companies in this country
    exist to sell custom designed equipment. These activities
    range from the company with highly skilled designers who
    develop equipment from scratch, through the company
    designing around established concepts but in a new space
    dimension, to those modifying or adding to existing products. The essential similarity between these types is that
    they all sell their products through negotiation around two
    major factors—price and delivery. This paper considers the
    factors controlled by the designer that significantly affect
    the ultimate profit of a contract which is of the nature of
    those outlined above.
