Engineering & Processing Work Instruction
Control # 110.3 / Rev. / A
To provide work instructions for Engineering & Processing.
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
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 Engineering & Processing Procedure
The engineering review shall address PPC ability to comply with the
The engineer responsible for the contract shall immediately inform the engineering manager
of any discrepancies or inability to complete the customer requirements.
The engineering manager or engineer assigned to the project will contact the customer and
resolve the problem.
The Engineer assigned to the project shall determine the level of documentation that will
be required to meet both the customer and company requirements.
Engineers shall address the requirements for:
Engineering and Documentation requirements for projects and processes:
Determined by the Project Engineer and Customer. The nature of these projects does not
allow for normal process control. Usually concept and experimental projects.
Engineering and Documentation requirements for projects and processes such
as Production jobs, Tooling, Machines and Short Run projects that require minimum
Create the process sheet
Create step prints (if necessary)
Design inspection tooling (if necessary)
Design manufacturing tooling (if necessary)
Create the first piece report (if necessary)
Review the process for customer and company requirements
Should involvement of the customer become necessary, contact the
appropriate salesperson who will coordinate any changes.
Review the process for:
Is the process safe?
Is the quality engineered in?
Is the efficiency engineered in?
Are the capacity requirements engineered in?
2 Determining Inspection Methods
There are standard inspection procedures detailed in the procedure for
Engineering shall determine the requirements for inspection, testing, methods and
instruments to be used.
3 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.
4 Post Production Review
The Engineering, Department and Quality Managers are responsible for
monitoring the success of all engineering and manufacturing processes.
The Engineering, Department and Quality Managers shall collect data on completed jobs,
project reports, customer needs, field performance, customer feedback and availability of
