Doing Business with Cheshire Engineering Corporation
How can Cheshire Engineering help me?
Are you looking for engineering personnel but haven't found the skills that
are required? Do you need engineering services performed on a one-time
basis? Are you experiencing a temporary "crunch" that needs to be
smoothed out? Do you have an idea for a product, but are not interested in
maintaining a full-time engineering staff? Cheshire Engineering exists to
provide engineering expertise to companies in all these situations.
It is always difficult to find good technical people and hiring can be a risky
and expensive proposition for an employer. Cheshire Engineering is able
to provide expert knowledge and skills on an "as-needed" basis with quick
availability and low risk.
How do I work with Cheshire Engineering?
Cheshire Engineering works the way you want to work, whether the job
requires a week or a year. For those clients who are supplementing their
engineering staff, Cheshire can work on site under the supervision of client
personnel. For those clients who are interested in full design engineering
services, Cheshire can work at its own facilities and deliver finished
prototypes. Virtually any arrangement in between these two extremes is
For projects that are open-ended or without firm specifications, Cheshire
Engineering can provide services on a time and material basis. For projects
that are self-contained and well-specified, Cheshire can provide services on
a time and material or fixed price basis.
Cheshire Engineering maintains facilities to perform electronic and
computer design engineering services including computer systems,
CAD/EDA tools, and software development tools. In certain cases,
customer provided tools and equipment may be appropriate or necessary.
Aren't consulting engineers expensive?
An employee is often more expensive than expected after benefits,
overhead, and other expenses are considered. A consultant is often less
expensive than expected after the ability to retain the consulting engineer
only as needed is considered, and is often more valuable due to
experience level and expertise. Further, today's rapid product cycles and
competitive markets means that a failure to bring a product to market in a
timely manner can be very costly to a company.
Who owns the rights?
Again, Cheshire Engineering works the way you want to work. In most
cases, all design rights are retained by you. Cheshire Engineering treats
your information as proprietary and will deliver all information and
documents to you at the completion of the project and support your
assertion of copyrights and patent rights. In some cases, it may be beneficial
for Cheshire Engineering to share or retain intellectual property rights. Such
cases are always with the approval of the client.
