A typical Design & Build project begins with the assignment of a Project Lead Engineer and a Single Point of Contact (SPOC). The Project Lead Engineer is the primary contact for all technical issues through the design phase. Once manufacturing begins the SPOC becomes the focal point for all manufacturing related issues and contractual arrangements. Votaw believes that this approach provides the best possible communication path to our customers. During the design phase, frequent “on the fly” reviews are held with the manufacturing team ensuring produce-ability is maintained. When the design has been approved by our customer for manufacture, the Project Lead Engineer and the SPOC hold a kickoff meeting to present the design to our manufacturing team assigned to your project. The design and manufacturing team work together in a concurrent fashion throughout the manufacturing process until the tool is shipped.
VPT has established a strong and reliable reputation with the Design, Build and Installation of tooling and special machines for the Aerospace Industry. Working closely with our customers, our engineers develop tooling strings and tooling requirements solving the most sophisticated manufacturing challenges.
The model/drawing release cycle is adapted to the requirements of the customer. Customer involvement throughout the design process is vital to the success of the project.
