There are many types of manufacturing experts because manufacturing applies to many industries. Manufacturing refers to the creation of any type of product, whether it is handmade or created by machine. Since any potential industry involved with a court case may require manufacturing consulting, it is imperative that the manufacturing expert witness selected for your case be knowledgeable in the specific subject of litigation.
Manufacturing expert witnesses may be experienced in such areas as technology and mechanical engineering, since these fields are often integral to the means of modern manufacturing. Whether it is a product of the apparel, construction, food, aviation, automotive, computer and data storage, ceramics, pharmaceutical, medical device, or packaging industry, manufacturing expert witnesses may be called upon to offer an expert opinion based on their knowledge of the manufacturing process specific to each field.
Manufacturing expert witnesses may also be asked to assess certain issues with labor management, manufacturing defects, product liability, product recalls, quality control, quality assurance, manufacturing cost management, cost engineering, outsourcing, product design, product safety, and any other logistics involved with manufacturing. Manufacturing litigation may occur over an issue with the manufactured product concerning a product defect or a safety issue experienced by a consumer. Other areas of litigation may involve an issue with safety concerning one or more employees involved with the manufacturing process, as workplace safety should be properly implemented in the presence of manufacturing machinery.
