Cost Reduction Services

BCTINT staff has years of cost reduction experience to offer its clients. This expertise was accumulated through several decades of design and manufacturing that witnessed the commoditization of electronic products and technology on a broad scale. Its principals experienced – first hand – the downward pressures on technology pricing, fast product turnarounds, increases in density and complexity, outsourcing and miniaturization. The net outcome of these experiences is that our subject matter experts can offer you a wealth of cost reduction knowledge in electronics, mechanical design and value engineering:
