Mechanical Design Engineering

Committed to Design Excellence with a Global Workforce of Mechanical Engineers

The spark of creativity and ingenuity that starts the process for a new product or improvement on existing technology means nothing if the result is not properly constructed. Before a successful product can come to market, the initial ideas must be tested and validated before assembly can be considered. To help make a great idea become a great product, analysis of mechanical design engineering can ensure that a product, part, or component function as intended in the real world.

Combining creativity, science, communication, and problem solving, mechanical design engineering aids in the transition from idea to product. From selecting the right materials, creating the specific dimensions, and designing for efficient assembly, businesses need mechanical design engineers to ensure that quality and value are built into every product. Jabil’s mechanical design engineering teams provide customers with knowledge and expertise from helping design and manufacture the world’s top brands to gain better market agility with efficient manufacturing processes that produce high quality products.

Benefits of Mechanical Design Engineering

Mechanical design engineering intersects with every industry and every market. Even the machines that assemble and manufacture the products must be designed themselves. Without the input of designers and engineers, the speed of innovation would be greatly impeded. Businesses take advantage of mechanical design engineering for many reasons and benefits:

  • Reduced manufacturing costs
  • Faster production times
  • Improved product ideation
  • Increased quality and value to products
  • Better product functionality

Mechanical design engineering encompasses a wide range of scientific disciplines to prepare products for real world functionality. They take into consideration physical attributes like materials strength and wear, along with environmental factors like temperature and operating environment when selecting materials and components. Jabil’s design and engineering solutions offer customers a holistic approach to production, creation, ensuring that the entire process is optimized to reduce risk and ensure quality. Mechanical design engineering specialists analyze the product design process to optimize successful production:

  • Understand the relationship between mechanical components and how they will be assembled
  • Collaborate with other designers to establish the functions of final mechanical products
  • Define part requirements for products
  • Identify tolerances for dealing with manufacturing variability
  • Meet design objectives and provide evaluations of product during the product life cycle
