    Tony Bondhus

    Product Development Engineer - Electronics, Mechanical, Automation

    United States

    I'm an expert and designing for cost reduction for high production. I can make almost any product cost less to produce while being higher quality. I will save your company far more money than you will pay me. I have a very wide range of skills, making me a whole team of highly talented engineers combined into one man. I can develop most high production consumer products completely on my own, even develop and automate the manufacturing processes. If you are looking for someone who can do product development for high volume products, you won't find anyone better suited for the task than me. Manufacturing Cost Reduction: Obviously, my knowledge of manufacturing is absolutely crucial for design for low manufacturing cost, but also my knowledge in other areas are often very helpful as well. Spending an extra thousand dollars on design can save a hundred thousand dollars in manufacturing, putting in that extra effort, and knowing how much extra effort to put in. This is an area where a perfectionist like myself, really shines!!! Time to market: Get it done right the first time, because doing it over costs both time and money. Being a perfectionist makes me try harder to get it done right the very first time, but it is really my wide range of knowledge that makes it possible. It dramatically reduces the need for questions, making it possible for me to get it done right the very first time. This is extremely important! It is not just the time to ask the questions, more important is that a lack of knowledge in an area opens the door for misunderstandings and mistakes, which dramatically increase time to market as well as increasing costs. Product development is all about communication. When I ask questions, I put the extra effort into my communications to make sure they are correctly understood, because a misunderstanding can cost a fortune. All these factors dramatically reduce time to market, and dramatically reduce cost as well as significantly improving product quality.
