The designers do not generally take up pilot projects. However, if they do, it is definitely advantageous, as they will have a better control over any alterations that may have to be made to suit the production process or to meet any cost reduction. In addition the changes required can be attended to without compromising on the original design value. These options will not be available when the pilot production is outsourced. Further there is a possibility of the production team altering the design in order to make their work easy, which may not be in the interest of the product or the user.
