Establish that your organization works with the manufacturing / operation group for design to cost, design for testability, and design for Manufacturability by reviewing product designs and ensuring product successfully transition from engineering development to manufacturing.

More Uses of the Manufacturability Toolkit:

  • Collaborate with customer quality engineering, product and manufacturing engineering personnel to determine critical part features and review Manufacturability of design.
  • Lead new product development meetings as an active team member with direct impact on design for Manufacturability and lowest possible cost.
  • Be accountable for selecting and developing material and equipment for the process to meet quality, reliability, cost, yield, productivity and Manufacturability requirements.
  • Drive the design requirements for the product while balancing implementation complexity, risks, Manufacturability, serviceability and quality.
  • Perform detailed design analysis and review with hardware engineering team to achieve product performance, cost, reliability and Manufacturability requirements.
  • Be accountable for leading and creating designs of complex wireless systems mounting structures and generate associated product assembly drawings and documentation for manufacturing.
  • Manage work with product development engineering and manufacturing engineering to translate design requirements into manufacturing requirements to achieve design for Manufacturability.
  • Orchestrate: work closely with product development on design for Manufacturability of new and existing products and development and documentation of processes.
  • Manage work with systems assembly and manufacturing engineering to ensure proper design for Manufacturability, test, assembly and quality control systems are established.
  • Support cross functional launch team design / Risk evaluation, Manufacturability supplier review meetings to assure form, fit and function of product / assembly design intent.
  • Support new product failure analysis and continuous improvements in product Manufacturability and performance, contributing to the production of the highest quality products available.
  • Methodize: work closely with engineers to resolve issues related to new product introduction as Manufacturability and form, fit, and function for future builds.
  • Confirm your strategy provides technical support for the qualification and validation of new product introductions to ensure all aspects of performance, Manufacturability and quality are achieved.
  • Apply software engineering knowledge and skills in support of new product development and sustaining efforts, while designing products for reliability, compliance and Manufacturability.
  • Support new product development by ensuring that components are designed for Manufacturability and that processes/procedures are adhered to in relation to quality, method and cost.
  • Help generate creative solutions to design problems and demonstrate feasibility by considering factors as risk, reliability, Manufacturability.
  • Lead cross functional planning, coordination, and task execution situations involving the full spectrum of engineering and integration activities.
  • Communicate effectively with multidisciplinary teams to monitor project progress, manage critical path activities, and to ensure adherence to project milestones and timelines.
  • Assure that product designs, specifications, facilities and labor are maximized to improve the Manufacturability at the lowest cost for all products.
  • Manage work with external partners, lead technical hardware product activities, provide customer support and address complaints and Manufacturability issues.
  • Be accountable for selecting and developing material and equipment for process to meet quality, reliability, cost, yield, productivity and Manufacturability requirements.
  • Support the process and yield teams on process changes, new process and new product introduction analysis of yield, parametric and e test data to ensure technology and product meet Manufacturability goals.
  • Establish: act as a point of contact with production on the transfer of new mechanical designs to manufacturing for methods, and manufacturing specific tooling.
  • Ensure engineering structure (drawings and build documentation) are developed for Manufacturability, efficiency, affordability and configured for incorporation into the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and Material Resource Planning (MRP).
  • Confirm your project participates and/or leads concurrent engineering activities to ensure design for Manufacturability on new designs of large machined components.
  • Manage work with local suppliers to develop package designs, with emphasis on Manufacturability, recyclability, alignment to global hazardous materials regulations, ease of assembly/use and cost containment.
  • Ensure you consider; lead design review utilizing an established toolbox of design review tools for compliance to engineering principles/standards and Manufacturability.
  • Establish that your enterprise supports the technical development of automated and manual assembly techniques, tooling, and identifies electro/mechanical testing development to improve product Manufacturability.
  • Discern critical design factors important to assigned projects and to be able to logically defend tradeoffs ergonomics, Manufacturability, aesthetics, etc.
  • Select and develop material and equipment for the process to meet quality, reliability, cost, yield, productivity and Manufacturability requirements.
