Production and ValueEngineering


Today, our customers demand full product life cycle support— the ability to advance complex, new technologies from a concept vision through product development and, finally, into mass series production. Many of these new technologies require specialized support not only in the product and design engineering phases, but also in manufacturing, cost engineering, supply chain management, and advanced product quality planning as well. Developing reliable, and competitive engineered products requires early involvement by a diversified and highly specialized team. This early involvement provides maximum value in production, upfront profitability, and eliminates unnecessary new tooling, investments, and production validation expenses. FEV’s manufacturing, cost engineering, supply chain management, and advanced quality planning services can be provided separately or integrated within a complete product and production development offering. FEV offers these tailored services to both automotive and non-automotive customers.
