Production engineering and industrialisation

Are you in need of support in complex and challenging technological subjects. Do you want to support your team with external specialists? Do you lack the capacity to realise a project near-term? At the same time, the cost control must be secured in addition to the normal activities. You have HELVETING’s competent specialists on your side at every step.

Production engineering and industrialisation of HELVETING comprises the subject areas concerning products to be manufactured and the corresponding processes for an automatic manufacturing.

What services does HELVETING offer in production engineering?

HELVETING consults and supports you directly on site. We consult you in fabrication, process and product planning, cost reductions as well as in process optimisations. As technical operative experts, we support you competently in management, in production, in sales and purchasing as well as in quality support and in process layout planning. HELVETING is competent and acts quickly to obtain the best possible and individualised result for you.

Areas relating to production engineering

All comprehensive activities concerning costs, manufacturability, quality, performance, reliability, maintainability and usability of a product are stewarded by HELVETING in the area production engineering. Thus, the design, the engineering and the production of a product (mechanics, electronics and software) are covered by production engineering. You benefit from our Cross Engineering and the interdisciplinary cooperation of HELVETINGs business units mechanical engineering, systems engineering and software engineering.

What areas of responsibility does production engineering comprise?

The production engineering is responsible for the definition of the performance roadmap and its fulfilment when increasing to serial production. The capability analysis, product cost optimisation as well as the identification and realisation of the yield optimisation are also part of it.

HELVETING gladly realises the definition of the qualification plan and the creation of a feasibility analysis too.

The production engineering can be understood as the interface between development and production. It improves the product quality and assures the product’s reliability for example with FMEA.

What competences are essential in production engineering?

Besides statistical methods, physical analysis methods and specific technologies for manufacturing processes, we are familiar with subjects and requirements concerning the product safety and qualifications. Our design specialists who are trained in all common CAD programmes and simulation programmes stand by your side. HELVETING’s experts are strong in analytical working methods and work solution-oriented.

Industrialisation for optimised processes?

Industrialisation means today the same as standardisation and automation of processes. We are not only concerned with the product to be manufactured but also with the respective process for an automated manufacturing. In these topics, you can especially profit from our interdisciplinary competence teams.

Use the HELVETING network

HELVETING can fall back on a wide knowhow network. Experts from various engineering sciences work and think at HELVETING across the borders of disciplines. Exceptional solutions are especially created in interdisciplinary competence teams.

In production engineering and in industrialisation, we interconnect us for instance with experts from the areas plant engineering, mechanical engineering / automation, quality management, industrial process management / lean, product architecture / modularisation, design CAD, but also from the classical project management.
