Manufacturing engineers are involved with the process of manufacturing from planning to packaging of the finished product. They work with tools such as robots, programmable and numerical controllers, and vision system to fine tune assembly, packaging, and shipping facilities. They examine flow and the process of manufacturing, looking for ways to streamline production, improve turnaround, and reduce costs. Often, a manufacturing engineer will work with a prototype, usually created electronically with computers, to plan the final manufacturing process.

In a globally competitive marketplace, it is the job of the manufacturing engineer to figure out methods and systems to produce a product in an efficient, cost-effective way to provide a marketing edge for the final product.
