The assessment process provided real value to our company.

Before taking part in the assessment I was under the assumption that EAC was a typical Value Added Reseller (VAR). I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that isn’t the case. EAC has a breadth of services, depth of knowledge and dedication to product development that I haven’t seen in other VAR’s.


Below you’ll find answers to our most commonly asked questions.

You can count on personalized support around the clock by email, live chat, or by joining a live webinar.

Can the Digital Manufacturing Assessments be done remotely?

A key part of the Digital Manufacturing Assessment (DMA) is an on-site tour of your manufacturing facilities. We find on-site walkthroughs give us the best understanding of your environment, machines, technology, and processes supporting your product manufacturing. We can do the other analyses remotely to limit in-person interactions if preferred. These include individual interviews, follow-up discussions, and results presentations.

Once the assessment is complete, will we receive an architected solution that outlines specific devices, connectivity methods or control systems?

We do not deliver an in-depth architected solution. Our results will outline your current operational state, the optimization opportunities found and their value, and a high-level strategic roadmap on how to achieve those.

If you agree with the future vision we present, then we would involve our Solution Development and Service Architects. They would then scope out and architect a solution.

What areas can the assessment cover at our business?

We can assess your business processes end-to-end. We interview any stakeholders involved with product development, whether they contribute to or consume your product data.

What if I only want to focus on one specific area with this assessment?

We offer a variety of assessments – each type can be tailored to cover what your organization needs specifically. Please read through the outlines of our assessments to find out which one might best fit your needs. If you are not sure, contact us. We would be glad to help determine how we can best help your organization.

Are we required to buy from you once the assessment is complete?

No. We intentionally position these assessments as a standalone. You can choose to execute our recommendations any way you would like. However, we are confident that partnering with EAC will bring you the results that our experts recommend for the future of your product development.
