      • It is expected that the engineer will draw on Six Sigma tools and philosophies to ensure a robust design methodology is executed for each product development.
      • All new component and assembly design will be the principle charge of the engineer.
      • This will require the engineer to be able to conceptualise ideas and develop them into workable and robust solutions.
      • Appropriate records relating to the design development process of projects are expected. These should highlight reasoning behind design developments. They should also include any relevant information relating to evaluation and resulting decisions.
      • Consideration will be given to issues including design for cost, manufacturability and process, either internally or by third parties. Appropriate material selection, finish and tolerance issues will be the assessed
      • Feedback relating to new component design from prototype and first off production will be used to develop the design to final issue.
