Service detailed description

Highlights

The evaluation questionnaire consists of 110 questions to assess your project engineering against global best practices.


In addition, the questionnaire allows for two specific analyses:

  • evaluation of "Lean Engineering" practices compared to other more standard practices
  • consolidation of evaluations by type of actionable driver according to the Wevalgo organisational model

The technical development may be performed in-house or externalised; an initial question enables to choose between the two situations and the questionnaire adapt itself (management of internal development or management of external contractors performing the development); equipments, component or parts may be manufactured outside.
