Issues in the engineering sector are an increasing threat to the survival of the various engineering companies in the competitive market (McKeever, 2015). The problems and the issues are all regarded as an important aspect of the working sector to be tackled with ease and mitigated fast. Research has found that there are a number of problems, which can be considered as threats for the companies in the engineering sector (Soomro and Zhang, 2015). Some of the issues in the sector are:
These problems in the engineering sector forces the new companies to rise up to the level of the other companies who are successful in the market. This report is based on the study of a company for in order to find the problem, which the company faces in the market competition, and provide them with a possible solution for the same problem. The selected company for the report is MKEC Engineering, Inc.
The MKEC Engineering, Inc. was founded in the year 1982. The company was based on the principle that they would be able to provide the best superior engineering solution for the responses collected from their client (MKEC, 2018). They have come a long way and has been able to grow both in the number of client they handle and the services that they are able to offer to their clients. They have been able to compile a group of best engineers who work on different projects in order to deliver the best quality of their work. This has helped them to retain their customer profile for this long (MKEC, 2018). They consider themselves as an engineering and a land planning firm who are able to provide their clients with the widest range of consulting services. They provide services to client throughout the United Stated of America and in Canada. They are also willing to provide the support to their customers to other countries as well.
Based on their company details it can be said that the company is still working to make their place in the market. The company has still not been able to place their best work in the hands of the clients, which would help them to make a brand name easily (MKEC, 2018). Their large number of services they offer and the inversely proportional amount of employees they currently offer can determine the struggle with their work. From their website, it can be seen that they are able to work a various number of projects but they do not have the required amount of experienced employees for the projects. Understanding of the problems, which they are currently facing in their company, would help them to work on them to mitigate the issues and rise up in the competition.
On the basis of the study of the company background it has been found that the company has a number of issues in their management working community and project acquisition. The company with the short number of employees and the huge catalogue of projects handling structure forces them to crumble down on the weight of the projects (Cheng and Lu, 2015). This section would discuss the problems the company faces based on the understanding of the company profile and background. The problems which the company is currently facing in the company are discussed as follows:
The above problems has been considered to be of the highest priority for the company. They should work on the above issues for which would help them to proceed towards success.
Solutions to the problems
After the study of the problems the company is currently facing in the market the solutions based on the study has been compiled and provided in this section. The solutions can be considered by the company for the process of removing the issues in their company. The solutions based on the problems are discussed below:
These solutions has been provided based on the company’s working structure. These solutions has been analyzed to fit the work profile and would be suitable to be implemented into the system.
Defense to the solutions
It is customary for a problem solver to provide a justification for the solution that is being presented for the problems. This would help in the proper understanding of the solutions. This has been considered for this report also and this section would discuss the justification for the solutions which had been provided in the previous section. The justification is as follows:
To conclude this report, it can be said that the issues, which the company, MKEC Engineering, Inc. faces in the current market scenario, can be easily outgrown with the help of the solution shared in the report. The following of the solution would be the best option for the company if they are willing to thrive in the market competition and rise up in the brand scale. Apart from this, this report has been completed with the help of analytical arguments, which has helped in the judgment of the problem for the company. The solutions, which has been shared within this report, has been clearly identified with the help of cause and effect relationship between them.
