btw ron please do cut context that's not necessary, it was very hard
to find the questions you wrote.

 so, cutting all but the relevant context, and answering just the
questions you asked: there are two aspects.

 firstly, the schematics: these just take time.  it could be
parallelised in theory

 secondly, the PCB layout: this takes time *and* is difficult.
creating the footprints for compoents could be parallelised, but the
PCB layout - positioning of components, connecting components, laying
out tracks and the planes? no - for such a small PCB that is best
handled by one person with the required expertise.

 and that task alone takes months to do from scratch.
