Industries which manufacture products explore various Process Development methods to optimize and control the processes used to produce final products. Development engineers work across the manufacturing industry on products as diverse as semiconductors, foods, medicines, cosmetics and paints.
Process development engineers aim to optimise the performance of manufacturing systems. They are responsible for identifying and developing new processes for product manufacture, as well as implementing process controls to ensure that quality products are manufactured in a reproducible manner.
Product development engineers work with research scientists to develop new ideas and scientific discoveries, which can be utilised in the manufacture of new products. They also develop and improve existing products.
Product and process development engineers are concerned with improving the efficiency and profitability of the manufactured product.
