How Estanc uses GrabCAD
Big part of Estanc business is made of made-to-order solutions and these custom fuel tanks are based on customer requirements. This creates spikes in need for engineering resource as new orders mean that Estanc’s engineers are overwhelmed with new project documentation while trying to deliver designs for an ongoing project. All that under tight deadlines.
Higher temporary workload creates big ups and downs in the need for engineering capacity. Being responsive during peak times was critical but employing qualified engineers for short periods of time was not economically desirable.
Instead Estanc decided to turn to GrabCAD and hire virtual engineers during the peak times to turn scanned product sketches into technical drawings and also get rendered images for their sales materials. This allows Estanc own engineers focus on high impact tasks, product development and quality control.
The work process is straight forward and streamlined for speed and quality. Estanc constructor uploads project input files to GrabCAD project management website and these materials are checked by a senior engineer who assigns an engineer with the best fit in terms of industry and experience.
Estanc can monitor the whole work process and stay up to date on the progress. Before delivering work back to Estanc GrabCAD’s senior engineer double checks the quality of the finished files.
Using GrabCAD cut Estanc’s product development time down by 50% and gave them access to high quality on-demand engineering resource.
