Thank You to all for the reponse.
How are you transferring the design from engineering to manufacturing.

Is your design completed in house? Manufacturing vended?
In my (very “uncorporate” opinion) you can only have so much control over operations done outside your company unless you plan on auditing monthly. Quality and time to market can really only be reduced through observation, communication and continuous improvement. “Throwing it over the wall” to a vendor may have lower initial costs, but long term the operations from design through manufacturing need to be under one roof/campus.
The “transfer” means that you are locking manufacturing out of the design and the design out of manufacturing. Concurrent engineering by design, testing, manufacturing and quality must be completed concurrently. Communication is the key and knowing what works best for the entire team will make each project easier and easier to complete on time with low cost and higher quality.
So to answer your question…
Without stating too much here…if you design in house and manufacture in house…the profits will come!
This is a very broad topic. I recommendyou narrow this down to some specifics. Are you manufacturing in house or out?Is this in regard to documentation (drawings), CAD files,coordination, reviews and approval processes for parts and tooling, quality requirements, other things or all theabove?
