Components Engineering is a comprehensive Engineering Support discipline, and in many Engineering and Manufacturing companies, a highly respected department. A Components Engineer’s efforts significantly contribute to a product’s long-term reliability, continuing availability, and instant Sales and Marketing credibility gained through and recognized by a company’s repeat business opportunities, superior customer relationships, and an industry wide reputation for quality and excellent after-market support services. This website has been developed to first create a meeting place for Components Engineers who have gained the hands-on experience working as a CE and who also have a desire to network and share that knowledge with other CE’s. Over the years, I have tried to find a website dedicated to this discipline and have only found one, (The Society of Components Engineers in Orange County.)
In addition, I have talked to many Components Engineers who have indicated their intention to “Write a Book Someday”. Well, to that I say. “Me too”. I have written the beginnings of just such a book in the White Paper section of these pages. This site hosts many of the resources one needs to create and maintain an effective Components Engineering department. Everything is free for the taking and distribution. Most of these files are in downloadable PDF format, but if you would like the original, editable documents, please contact me via the “Contact Us” page, request the document you want, and I will send it to you as an email attachment. The second reason for developing this site is to offer some visibility to Components Engineers who have not worked in their field for a while and are not ready to retire. Your experience and knowledge should NOT be retired even if you are. Now, here is where you keep it alive. This site is open to your contributions. I have populated it with forms, procedures, processes, and flowcharts. If you have anything you believe would be additive to this site and would be willing to contribute your content free of charge, then let’s build this community of professionals together.
Finally, if you would like to be listed as a Components Engineering consultant on these pages, then by all means, submit an email listing your work history, the general geographical area in which you would be available to consult, and let’s start talking. You set your own consulting fees and keep that information confidential between yourself and your clients. When you sign your content on these pages, your clients will have an opportunity to preview your work and get an idea as to the comprehensiveness of your knowledge and your worthiness for hire.
