Would you like to complete critical engineering tasks with the flick of a switch?
CDI-Aerospace allows companies the freedom to outsource projects, finish difficult
engineering tasks, and improve their company's overall return on investment.
In conjunction with our world-class engineering services, CDI-Aerospace has developed
proven outsourcing methods for performing and delivering work. In addition, our
distance engineering capabilities offer even greater flexibility and benefits for
our customers, anywhere in the world.
Outsourcing Delivery Methods
These two delivery methods allow our customers to manage their workload either by
project or by function, and provide our customers with the flexibility to choose
which solution best fits their business needs.
Project-Based Outsourcing work is performed on a project-by-project basis at
one of our CDI-Aerospace Design Centers in conjunction with liaison teams
based at our customer's site. CDI assumes full responsibility from schedule
and project management, to delivery and acceptance.
CDI-Aerospace builds and manages a customer-dedicated outsourcing-support
operation (on-site or off-site, with or without hardware and software), and
assumes responsibility for a complete function of an entire project.
Starting the Outsourcing Process
Planning & Work Package Review
One of CDI's greatest strengths lies in our ability to review the required work,
estimate resources and schedule, prepare a proposal, and develop a project plan
in a short amount of time with a high degree of accuracy. Quality and program
plans are tailored according to customer specifications using customizable templates.
We realize that a proposal is not only a vehicle for our customers to
evaluate their options, but is also a reflection of professionalism
and commitment to price, schedule and capability.
Taking a comprehensive approach, CDI-Aerospace generally includes an
estimate of hours, a work breakdown structure, our technical approach,
key assumptions and proposed resources - and we deliver it within the
requested timeline established by each customer.
Outsourcing Delivery Tools
Distance Engineering enables communication and transmission of engineering
work packages between the customer and CDI-Aerospace using secure dedicated
data lines, Internet-based technologies and the latest collaborative
engineering tools. Understanding that each customer has its own challenges,
CDI offers the flexibility in setting up its environment to meet your demands.
These processes and technologies enable us to perform work around the globe,
around the clock, making the process seamless to our customers.
In this relationship, CDI-Aerospace provides an on-site liaison coordinator or
team that integrates the customer's processes with a CDI-Aerospace Design Center.
The coordination activities of the liaison team allow for successful data transfer
and immediate response to customer needs, creating a seamless link between the
customer and CDI-Aerospace.
Today, more than ever, it is essential for our customers to have an up-to-the-minute
status of every task being performed. The importance of real-time visibility lies in
assessing quality, time-to-complete and other measurements critical to planning
throughout the duration of the project.
CDI-Aerospace has developed a comprehensive set of customizable metrics that can be
delivered at customer requested frequencies. In addition, CDI-Aerospace uses the
latest interactive technologies to allow real-time information sharing at anytime,
anywhere in the world.
Project Acceptance & Lessons Learned
Once the outlined deliverable has been completed and delivered, our job is far from
complete. CDI-Aerospace stands ready to provide ongoing support in the form of changes,
updates or even data retention. In addition, at the completion of each project, a
"lessons learned" is generated and shared with our customers for continuous
