Solid engineering is the backbone of any successful product. A product’s performance, safety and reliability all stem from the engineering that went in to it. Quality engineering minimizes costs while maximizing performance. In short, the engineering is complete when no further elements can be removed while still allowing the design to meet its requirements.
