Long-term DGCD collaboration keeps Woodward lean, competitive

For this tightly run development organization, “outsourcing” really means close collaboration on precise design work.

Woodward, in Fort Collins, Colorado, has a long tradition of innovation in the aerospace and energy industries. Both industries evolve continuously, and for Woodward, keeping innovation high and overhead low became increasingly challenging in a volatile global economy.

Woodward sought an effective new working model for running development on tight internal resources and increasing design capacity on demand, while maintaining high workmanship standards.

DGCD was the answer

Teaming up with DGCD was an efficient, cost-effective solution for the Woodward design lab. DGCD provides highly collaborative layout design help at the same level of quality that Woodward expects internally.

Maintaining process and product excellence

The Woodward and DGCD engineering and PCB design teams were immediately well aligned on technical expertise and workmanship. DGCD gave top priority to quickly learning Woodward’s particular design style and processes. This enabled an outsourced service that fit seamlessly with Woodward’s  development environment and methodologies refined over years of success.

The result: Woodward now has the flexibility to scale design resources as needed to meet fluctuating demands, and without compromising process or product quality.
