This may be in the near future. There already is a
hand full of fabricators out there capable of this
right now. The issue is (as you've outlined) it
requires a pretty decent investment in a software
package and someone competent enough to understand
what it calculates. As the "one stop shop" approach
becomes more prolific (fab, assembly, and design
acquisitions and mergers), we will see more
services offered. Some of these big guys (getting
bigger) understand this stuff better and have the
available cash flow to support it.
