Product definition / modeller
This team, which defines engineering solutions, comprises an integrated, multi-skilled group of designers, modellers and analysis engineers. Product Definition Engineers are responsible for the specification and leadership of component packages. They check component models and detail drawings to ensure they meet design intent - satisfying fit, form and function - and are optimised for manufacture.
Cost Modellers help to develop stand-alone cost models and to integrate these models into our design systems (PLM-CAD-CAM). To improve the fidelity and accuracy of the cost models they develop, they use the latest manufacturing simulation packages. Moreover, through cost model and data analysis, members of this team are able to identify new ways to reduce costs, suggest tool and process improvements, and provide guidance to the integrated product teams on process and component cost issues. All of which ensures that the selected design is the optimal business solution.
