Manufacturing Engineers are designers, as well as analytical and creative thinkers—they can operate on their own initiative but also contribute as a team member working with engineers from various disciplines. Engineers in this field develop and improve manufacturing processes and product designs. They also test assembly designs and look for ways to improve efficiency, as well as review the final product to ensure it complies with customer and Government standards. These professionals generally use computer-aided design (CAD) software to create, modify and test prototypes of products and processes.
In this role you will be responsible for ensuring that products are designed for ease of manufacturability, and for the successful roll-out of new hardware designs to manufacturing. This includes providing design inputs early in development, providing cost analysis and executing pilot runs. In addition, you will have a responsibility for developing prototype manufacturing processes and transitioning these processes through all design phases. The design and implementation of product test fixtures and tooling is also a key aspect of the job.
