WHY USE A PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER?

Engineers are scientists in clinical practice - trained to make the practical decisions needed to implement a solution now - not necessarily the perfect solution, but a practical solution, and perhaps equally important a timely and cost-effective answer.

A licensed Professional Engineer builds a solution that won't come back to haunt you as a liability.

INTERDISCIPLINARY TROUBLESHOOTING

"Solving the problems that fall into the cracks between disciplines"

The Problem with Projects involving Multiple Disciplines

Many problems fall into the cracks between disciplines. In scientific terms this is a kind of ‘boundary condition’ problem. Most disciplines handle the middle of their fields well. It is like a curve fit that works well in the middle of the data but not as well near the extremes.

This is NOT SUGGESTING ANY LACK OF SKILL IN THE DISCIPLINE SPECIFIC EXPERTS. Often, the more capable the expert, the more focused he or she is in optimizing their discipline. Optimizing one discipline can inadvertently de-optimize another discipline.

INTERDISCIPLINARY DESIGN AND TROUBLESHOOTING IS A SPECIALITY IN ITS OWN RIGHT - like a physician who is a 'diagnostician' and identifies obscure problems, or a pharmacologist specializing in drug interactions. Interdisciplinary specialists are focused on the "no man’s land" between disciplines. The interdisciplinary problem is the one usually missed during testing.

How GSC can help you:

GSC brings years of experience coming at these problems from different directions. Your existing staff may not have time available for the detailed investigations needed. If something is not working right, GSC can help.
