Trade Studies

Engineers need a formal tool for

evaluating tradeoffs between solutions.

By conducting trade studies that account for cost, risk, complexity, and other factors, you can weigh the merits of different engineering options in order to arrive at the optimal decision. Of course, this is only effective if you can navigate the uncertainty that often comes with complex questions of capacity, scheduling, and benefits. Thanks to its considerable multidisciplinary experience across numerous engineering fields, Intertec is able to help its clients grapple with that uncertainty to produce trade studies that actually reflect the best possible choice.

By quantifying the operational capabilities of competing options, we're able to present a heuristic for comparing different proposed scenarios. 

:Because our experience runs the gamut of technologies, techniques, and lifecycle stages, we're able to provide a comprehensive view of tradeoffs not just for the immediate circumstances but for larger project constraints and realities down the road. In this way, we give our clients a modicum of certainty for problems that could easily seem intractable--resulting in informed, decisive decisions up and down the process chain. Not only does this help to mitigate potential disruptions down the road, it also provides a clear look at the realities of the system or systems under design. Our highly experienced team offers: 

  • A deep bench of experienced engineers
  • Strong problem-solving abilities for complex questions
  • Industry-leading certifications and qualifications 
  • A track record of delivering client success
