Rresearch and develop ideas for new products and production systems. Improve the performance and efficiency of existing products.Design and implement cost-effective equipment modifications to help improve safety, reliability and throughput. Develop project specification with colleagues, often including those from other engineering disciplines. Develop test and evaluate theoretical designs. Discuss and solve complex problems with manufacturing departments, sub-contractors, suppliers and customers. Making sure a product can be made again reliably and will perform consistently in specified operating environments. Manage projects using engineering principles and techniques. Plan and design new production processes. Produce details of specifications and outline designs. Recommend modifications following prototype test results. Use research, analytical, conceptual and planning skills, particularly mathematical modeling and computer-aided design. Consider the implications of issues such as cost, safety and time constraints. Work with other professionals, within and outside the engineering specialism. Monitor plant and systems.
Research and develop ideas for new products and production systems. improve the performance and efficiency of existing products. • Research - using mathematical modelling to work out whether new developments and innovations would work and be cost effective. • Design - turning research ideas into technical plans using CAD/CAE software. • Testing - collecting and analysing data from tests on prototypes. • Modifying designs and re-testing - there are several stages before a product is ready for manufacturing. • Reporting - writing or presenting regular progress reports for project managers and clients. • Environmental assessment - taking into account the environmental impact of new products and their manufacturing processes and how they would be safely disposed of • Engineering,Manufacturing and...
