About the CompanyThe company, up to this point, has sub contracted its design work out to various companies throughout Ireland. This has caused the business problems in the past due to late receipt of drawings and issues with poor communication on various technical aspects of the drawings during manufacture. The company needs to develop in-house design capability to enable them to design and manufacture a product idea they have for a collapsible cattle feeding trough and gate to help diversify the business and enable them to have their own product range. To facilitate this and future new product development the company needs to develop in-house 3D CAD design capability, acquire the ability to provide stress analysis FEA (finite element analysis) studies and be able to access products against DFMA (design for manufacturing assembly) methodology.
