I have a question of whether I can exclude 7.3. My company makes product to order.

Customers send me 2 types of drawings: TypeI dwgs are very specific, give exact dimensions. I specify suitable materials, I determine the appropriate mfg. processes etc.

Type II dwgs from my customers provide overall dimensions. Our engineering dept. calculates internal part size, specifies suitable materials and determines appropriate mfg methods.

My question is: Do we design our product, or not?

If you were simply making to print I'd say not. But you mention that you "specify suitable materials". From a metallurgical point of view, materials selection is generally part of the design process. Just one opinion.

Keywords :calculate / specifies.

It's like your customer said : I want a box for shipping easter eggs - he gives you the overall dimensions, but it does not specify how to and from which type of material you must manuf. that box - so it seems like design.

Your use of the word "specify" leads me to think that you are design responsible.

What do your customers think?
