Manufacturing Engineering Enhances the Product Development Process

Manufacturing engineering is more critical than ever in today’s rapidly evolving market. With increasing demands for efficiency, innovation, and complex technology, the incorporation of manufacturing engineering during the design and engineering stage is crucial.

Manufacturing Engineering Focuses on the Operation of Integrated Systems of Production

Incorporating manufacturing engineering during the design and engineering stage of a new product is important.  To increase the efficiency of both time and cost, engineers implement strategies, analysis, and processes during the product’s design stage.

VPI manufacturing engineers see the broad spectrum of the product life cycle, as well as the specific details of what it takes to create, prototype, and manufacture high-tech electronic products. Our client’s time and money are highly valued with an efficient design and manufacturing plan.

Additionally, our manufacturing engineers are involved in supply chain management, quality management, distribution and logistics, life-cycle management, and environmental factors. 

While mechanical engineering skills are consistently used, manufacturing engineers and mechanical engineers often work side by side to create the best product life cycle.  

Manufacturing engineering has also been defined as production engineering and is based on core industrial engineering skills and concepts.  By focusing not only on the design and development of the product, but also on the operation of integrated systems of production, manufacturing engineers can achieve high-quality, efficient, and economically competitive products.  Integrated systems of production can include employee product-building line procedures, robots, automated machinery, computers, or networks of computers.

VPI currently has a 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility to provide high-tech electronic assembly and services for products with high-quality, unique, and complex system requirements
