ECAD Work Package (EWP)

ECAD have noticed over the last 10 years project engineers are expected to carryout less engineering and more project administration.
Examples of this are when business head count has been reduced in purchasing & accounts, which lead to the project engineering negotiating deals, placing orders, chasing payments, etc…
We have noticed that in 1990’s the split of a project engineers time was around 80% engineering and 20% project administration, we feel this has now switched around causing the shortage of engineering skills that ECAD is now able to address.
By breaking down the task into specific activities in the Work Breakdown spreadsheet we can ensure the most cost effective use of engineering time.
The ECAD Work Package spreadsheet
The spreadsheet has a project hierarchy, and detailed Work Breakdown Packages, this is presented to the client allow with an estimate of time.
The purpose is to maximise the efficient use of key skills.
The ECAD Work Packages are designed in line with IR35 regulations
