Over the years, Owens Design has mastered the art of product development- reducing design costs while simultaneously producing high-quality, peak-performance semiconductor equipment designs. Through optimizing operations in our company’s day-to-day processes and unique staffing methodologies, we have pinpointed some counter-intuitive elements that are vital to cutting costs for capital equipment design.
Reducing R&D costs involves proper team pacing, utilizing the most experienced team players and engineers, accelerating design speed to stay on schedule, moderating the necessary checks and balance, and more.
Since our early days, Owens Design has operated by this specific model. In 2006, Owens Design CEO John Apgar discussed our processes in detail. Apgar discusses how Owens Design cuts costs while delivering the highest quality semiconductor designs from our team of highly-trained, specialized engineers – a process still relevant in our daily operations.
