Design Ownership

PR assumes complete responsibility for a component or system. The focus is on reducing the total cost of ownership, emphasizing accountability and commitment to deliver optimal solutions.

Managed/Advisor Services

PR assumes full ownership of delivering a service or function within the client’s operation. Leveraging its own intellectual property, PR executes functions based on pre-defined service levels specific to the service in question. PR takes accountability for continuous improvement in outcomes and ongoing optimization.

Project-Based Approach

PR is responsible for defining the cost, effort, and timeline required to complete the specified project deliverables. Shared responsibility is established based on the scope and service level definitions, fostering a collaborative and accountable project environment. While PR contributes to the client’s intellectual property, the IP is owned by the client.

Placement Model

Within the placement model, PR provides the engineering resources and the clients retain project and productivity management responsibilities. PR assumes the management of shared services and takes ownership of delivering specific services or functions within the client’s operation. All intellectual property generated is owned by the client.
