World class matching of competence
Our own experience makes it possible for us to meet high expectations for “on demand “competence. The right person for the job, whether it is an expert in complex gear design or a swift CATIA draftsman, is bound to be reachable from our own personnel or from our vast network.
Often a resource or a specialist is not the answer to your question – let ÅF offer you a project instead. We define the project to best suit your needs.
ÅF handles the ramp up – and downs of your capacity needs. This saves time and money. ÅF will be your partner in developing and execute the resource plans for a project or a group of projects. We will do this at our premises – giving you more flexibility.
ÅF can take your specification, or we could help you define one, and then execute the whole project with a turnkey delivery at the end. By doing this it will be our responsibility to handle schedules and budgets. We are using our experience and our methods to create value for you. Our way of working will add efficiency.
Sometimes the best way of helping out will be maintaining and supporting your current products or subsystems. Thereby ÅF can release capacity in your organization for development of the next product generation instead. ÅF can also take on the challenge to lower the maintenance cost year by year – this by developing process and methodology and adding focus. This will give you focus.
Successful consulting builds on win win. Mechanics is our game.
