Verified review

overall it was a good work to get to the prototype phase and Brainchild help me visualize the product in 3d before I even hired them. After speaking with most of the referrals it came to be what I really need is a mold injection person to actually make final product I appreciate the honesty in telling me this.


I am a senior-level industrial designer and design engineer, with extensive 3D CAD solid modeling (SolidWorks and AutoCAD Inventor), engineering program management and cradle to grave new product development. I have won national design awards and hold over 20 U.S. and International design and utility patents.

Are you confident that when your product enters the market place, it performs to specification and meets your customer requirements, and that safety measures have been met, and that your engineers have not just cut and paste the FMEA document from a previous (similar) FMEA, and to check as done for the PPAP event? As the design or process F.M.E.A. (Failure Mode Effective Analysis) facilitator, I will ensure that all federal, nonfederal/customer, and company specifications are met, and I will ensure that the engineers understand what is meant by the function, potential failure mode, potential effects of failure and potential causes. Also, I will identify and distinguish between design and process action items. I will instruct how to build a block diagram which will include the type of interface (fasteners, clearance, etc.) and how it interfaces with the FMEA input. My working premise is primarily the excel format, however, I have had rudimentary APiS-IQ (version 6) training. Assignments have included automotive closures (side door, lift-gate and trunk), locks and latches, fascia, bumper, and sun/moon roofs. As a facilitator, I would work with the lead/project engineer in proposing a core team which includes design, electronics, manufacturing, quality, program management, and any other interested departments. Timing is difficult to predict because of the complexity of the project, however, it has been my experience that a DFMEA takes between 8 to 12 weeks, 2 team meetings twice a day. I am a retired mechanical (automotive) enginee, served an engineering apprenticeship, and acquired a mechanical engineering certificate in UK. Although I reside in Michigan, I have worked for many O.E.Ms in North America, Asia, and Europe.
