The transition from the design phase to the mass production phase is critical and requires the consideration of various constraints: technical, organizational, economic and human. The industrialization engineer plays a key role in this complex process. To meet the needs of our customers Porticos engineers have undergraduate and advanced degrees in physics, mechanical, aerospace and quality engineering; including registered professional engineers and a six sigma black belt. The value Porticos brings to our customer extends beyond mechanical product design. Porticos can provide manufacturing support, conduct supplier audits, and handle all part approval activities.
A management process with well-defined milestones and targets guarantees the achievement of high-level quality and production targets at lowest production costs. Porticos prides itself on being able to provide innovative solutions to our customer’s needs. By consistently performing manufacturing process analysis we maintain and grow our knowledge of the newest manufacturing methods and utilize them in our industrialization analysis. We strive to provide technical leadership and guidance to our customers throughout the design, development and production process.
Porticos is focused on providing engineering services in five major markets: industrial, military, consumer, energy, and medical. This diversification promotes “cross pollination” of ideas and technologies that ultimately bring value to all of the products we develop. Porticos engineers are experienced designing products that meet stringent safety ratings, are durable and ergonomic while maintaining cosmetic sensibility. Porticos has extensive experience integrating hardware, acoustics, antennas, displays and other electromechanical components into a package that can withstand consumer abuse.
At Porticos, our engineers work diligently to eliminate waste of time, money, materials, man-hours, machine time, energy and other resources. We accomplish this by investing in product knowledge and production activities, by analyzing the goals of production tasks, focusing on part standardization, preparing assembly and other technical work instructions, leading prototyping activities and working to resolve and provide guidance on technical issues for our deliverables.
