Founded by Eric Roulo in 2004, Roulo Consulting specializes in structural mechanics, finite modeling, classical engineering and project management consulting and training services to help organizations reduce risk, increase efficiency and retain their best people.

Drawing on over 20 years of experience in aerospace and defense contracting, we utilize the Pareto principle to focus on the 20% of the material that contributes to the majority (80%) of success.

When consulting, we use these principles to provide fast and accurate early appraisals of designs and concepts.

When training, the material is focused on just the need to know practical execution and ‘what do you do on Monday’ aspects of your job. We provide the framework, philosophy, templates, and tools to dramatically increase your team’s effectiveness starting the day after our training sessions.

Building great engineering teams

By combining our consulting and training services, we help our clients build great engineering teams while delivering your project on time and on budget.

While providing your existing staff with the required skills to conduct production level design and analysis, we focus on troubleshooting your deep technical problems, providing cradle-to-grave solutions for your new products and engineering challenges.

We want to engage your staff, transfer what we have to teach from our diverse experience, and leave having provided an engineering framework and software architecture that your team can continue to develop to solve future analysis problems.
