Engineering IT maintenance combined with other generic IT applications and supported by the same team could lead to greater challenges.
|Engineering processes have an inherent complexity, and cannot betreated like other transactional buisness process||Issues in engineering applications are closely knit with user groups, and standard measures like ‘volume of calls a consultantcan handle’ do not apply||Engineering applications are heavy in graphics, where solution to a particular problem may not be applicable to a seemingly similar problem|
