PEC University of Technology

Sector 12, Chandigarh , INDIA

The Success of an Engineer is marked by his /her competencies over a thorough ‘Product development’ with a promise to enhance the holistic Quality of life. The net improvement is defined by ‘gains@user’ minus costs which are borne by the society. Truly, Engineering profession were marked to serve as a win-win game, where there is no big loser, not even the environment, mother earth etc. The user is however the next door repairer, because an efficient engineer would have done it first time right- the designing, the production and the packaging of ideas, the needs and the complexities of a required product.

Complexities do not deter the engineer. They rather enthuse the engineer with an innovative zest, to outperform the available knowledge, and that competence may be displayed through exemplary product performance. The engineer however, has the onus to hone up his/her skills to be able to build that product @ lowest overall cost, and excel in terms of effectiveness and efficiency, undeterred by manufacturing limitations- For s/he has a continual wherewithal to evolve new manufacturing technologies.

Towards this objective it is planned to organize brainstorming over competitive product development strategies over a conference on Sept 29th 2009. The exact programme would follow.
