Production + Manufacturing

After the mechanical engineering design is complete, the product moves on to production engineering. Our production engineers ensure a smooth and economic realization of the mechanical design through production. They oversee the implantation of the manufacturing phase including tool and mold design, jig and fixture fabrication, assembly line automation, and Quality Assurance (QA) procedures. At Harbor Designs and Manufacturing, we integrate production engineering throughout the entire design process to help you achieve a manufacturable and cost-effective product.

The most important job of the production engineer is to test manufactured parts for QA. We follow the golden rules of QA: “Right First Time” (mistakes should be eliminated before they occur) and “Fit For Purpose” (the product is suitable for its intended purpose). Our production engineers develop systematic tests specific to your product to ensure the manufactured products meet applicable specifications. When necessary, failure and stress tests are conducted and statistical control used to identify problems. Based on the results, components can be re-engineered as necessary for increased performance.
