Optical Engineering Support for your company.
This service is most useful for companies which work with light and optics, but don't need a full time Optical Engineer to cover their optical engineering needs. This is often the case.
A full time experienced Optical Engineer would cost a company $30 000 - $180 000 per year (depending on location / country) plus the cost of infrastructure and software. Just and optical design software on subscription basis is $2 000 - $14 000 per year and the initial costs would be around $8 000 - $50 000 depending on software choice.
Pure optical design and consultation activity of a company can be usually covered with a 5-30% part time job. This is about 10-70 days a year.
However, such a low employment rate is not realistic in most cases. There are two usual solutions for this rather common situation:
1) Employing a full time Optical Engineer and using his/her remaining time for hardware, software, documentation, administration, project management purposes.
2) On demand optical consulting with an external company.
3) The DIY-Optics.com Solution:
Outsource your optical engineering needs to DIY-Optics.com on a yearly subscription basis.
For a yearly fee you get optical engineering support for 365 days and for a number of pre-defined hours within the 365 days.
An effort-estimate will be provided upon the start of every work package. After closing down the work package, a final number of work hours will be provided too.
