When it comes to design optimizations, solutions are usually not obvious. With a topology expert your designs can be recreated from scratch with reduced weight and material, but with the same functional properties.
Depending on the manufacturing process, even small changes can have a significant impact on manufacturability and cost. With an expert at hand, you can systematically optimize your components.
Understanding the costs of a product becomes ever more important. Experts of the exaas network help designers & cost engineers to predict costs and analyze cost structures with deep industry knowledge.

FAQ

We know that our approach is new and unconventional but we think there is a need for better collaboration in the industrial manufacturing space. Here are a few questions people ask us but feel free to get in touch if not everything is clear to you.

exaas (from “expertise as a service”) is an online service with the goal to give industrial companies access to external expert knowledge. Especially in the industrial technology space there are questions that are hard to answer and not every company has the resources to keep process experts at hand. That is why we find the right experts and provide a fast and reliable access to their services.

The experts are, on the one hand, consulting firms or independent consultants who specialize in certain manufacturing processes or technologies. However, one of the most important groups of experts are companies such as contract manufacturers or toolmakers, who have enormous shop-floor expertise and can immediately identify both potential and problems on the basis of the production drawing. All experts are chosen and vetted by the team to make sure only high quality work is done through exaas.

Initially our customers and experts have to sign a non-disclosure agreement between each other to be able to start working together. In the near future, exaas will conclude a non-disclosure agreement with all customers and each expert, so that all orders carried out via our platform are subject to secrecy. Furthermore, both parties, customers and experts, have the possibility to refuse to cooperate with certain companies, e.g. competitors.
