RE: Technology work / small scale manufacturing datasheet opinions sought
That is very true, big companies throw so much fancy tools at engineers that we forget how to be immaginative.



I think it boils down to the difference between small startup and big company:

Big companies have plenty of cash, but wages for good engineers are so high that they will do anything to save time.

If an expensive tool saves engineers 5 minutes per day, it will pay itself in a few months, because every engineering hour costs many hundreds in cash.

Time is expensive for them. Cash is cheap.

Startups are low on cash, but their engineers will work extra hours if needed (it's actually expected of them).

It's the oposite for them, time is cheap.


Wasn't trying to be overly negative. It's definitely a fascinating world to be involved in, specially now. Just be realistic and take this kind of cost into account.
