From Engineering to Industrialization going through Prototyping and Quality
"Engineering department is the research and development backbone (and so innovation !). From Engineering to Workshops going through industrialization, coordination is is a key factor of success, and, the technical data management, without which you cannot have an efficient management of the quality, need significant ability of rigor and organization".
Observations usually made:
> Tendancy to do not ask, or to not be supported in its request, for clear specifications, in writing, with commitments of people involved (mainly marketing).
> Tendency to do not have enough influence to ensure a sufficient period of products testing before they are put on the market. Tests sometimes rejected because not integrated upstream in the project schedule.
> Tendency to start from a blank sheet regardless of the number of new references (quid of standardization ...).
> Tendency to overlook the value analysis.
