Control # 110 / Rev. / A

I. Purpose

To document the Estimating and Engineering process and to define responsibilities.

II. Policy

The Estimating and Engineering process is critical to the success of PPC and shall be conducted within the scope of the appropriate ISO standard, company and customer requirements.

III. Responsibilities

The Engineering Manager has overall responsibility for this procedure.
Estimators, Engineers and Project Managers are responsible for compliance with this procedure at the project, job, or process level.
Where appropriate the Quality Manager shall provide support and review prior to release of manufacturing processes.

IV. Definitions

There are three basic types of manufacturing processed at PPC :

Prototype - This type of project or process is experimental in nature. The process is controlled by the engineer and / or the customer. The Project Manager for this job or process has overall responsibility for determining the required inspection, test, process controls and documenting the results.

Production - This type of project or process is often referred to as "Short Run" or ""Production work". This type of work includes tooling, special machines, production and lower volume manufacturing and assembly work.

Assembly / Second Operation - Assembly / Second Operation is either prototype or production for manufacturing with additional assembly process requirements. Reference the assembly/second operation work instructions.

1 Reference

The work instructions for:

  • Estimating

  • Engineering & Processing

  • Order Processing

  • Drawings, Specifications & Change Control

2 Tooling Requirements

Engineering shall design tooling that is functional and correct for the use it was intended for.
Engineering shall provide proper instructions for qualifying and using said tooling.
All tooling shall be qualified prior to use in production or delivered to the customer.

3 Post Production Review

The Engineering, Department and Quality Managers are responsible for monitoring the success of all design, engineering and manufacturing processes.
The Engineering Department and Quality Manager shall collect data on completed jobs, project reports, customer needs, customer feedback and availability of new technology.
