Our goal is to provide the highest quality engineering consulting services.  This means performing top-notch technical work, sharing all information, and excellent documentation.

Clearly communicating project results is extremely important.  At the end of each project, Young's Engineering delivers a clearly written summary, including:

  • in-person explanation of work, methods and algorithms employed, and review of results
  • summary of project and its outcomes
  • technical description of work performed
  • documentation and source code created during project
  • instructions to reproduce results
  • test data
  • any other customer-required documentation

At the conclusion of every project, our goal is to ensure the customer knows everything we know about the work performed, knowledge gained, and results obtained.
