  • Critically assess manufacturability during the entire design process done in conjunction with manufacturing and supply chain stakeholders.
  • Provide commonality of parts and assemblies as much as practically possible across the controls products.

Mechanical and Electronic Drawings and Documentation -
  • Generation of part and assembly drawings including schematics and PCBA layout files to the Company standards and reviewing design documents of the same.
  • Provide information as necessary for the generation of manufacturing assembly instructions by Production Engineering.
