Using 21st century 3D Scanning technologies, we measure objects to millionths of an inch accuracy, then perform comparisons and analysis to find the cause of physical product failure. See adantagement.com for further information and some example case results.
The chief focus for forensic engineers is to determine the cause of failure of any product. At Advantagement, we go far past that to give our clients a great deal more:
• What happened?
• Why did it happen?
• Who, if anyone, caused it to happen?
• How we can avoid it happening again?
• How much it will cost to eliminate the product failure cost?
Regardless of size and scope, your case needs the combination of scientific rigor, engineering expertise, cutting edge technology and expert testimony that only Advantagement can offer. Contact us today to discuss the capabilities we can deliver for your case, situation, and/or need. www.advantagement.com
