Engineering is an engineering science that is practiced in our lives to make it easier for us to do things. Engineering is able to overcome the problems that exist around everyday life from the smallest to the great and make the equipment that aims to facilitate human work, that’s the basic concept. Since the invention of the Steam Engine by James Watt in 1764 and the driving force of the Industrial Revolution of the 18th Century, Engineering has become an integral part of the world’s manufacturing development. Since then, the use of machines in the industry has become an absolute necessity in production and manufacturing activities. Certainly, every manufacturing company (a company that produces goods) has an engineering function. Some Companies use the term Maintenance, in the context of manufacturing. Engineering in manufacturing industry has a slightly different fate than its sibling “production part”, Guess what, usually maintenance room in factory layout. In the back is not it? There are many companies that open manufacturing technician careers. In addition, manufacturing technician careers have great opportunities, in the sense that the level offered is very good compared to any career.
In its development, along with the development of the company, this workshop activity can evolve into a machinery division (machinery company), not only as part making but transformed into machine maker or machine maker. Machinery, not only makes “standard” machines but is able to design and assemble upgraded types of machinery, to meet the needs of the production division, these upgrades include;
1) increasing capacity,
2) the higher level of product precision,
3) ease of care,
4) security and ease of operation,
5) Better engine resistance / Reliability,
6) Design that is interesting, modern, even futuristic,
7) Integrated with Information System.
Machinery Division is usually owned by companies that have large market scale and operation. It is certain that every manufacturing company has engineering functions, albeit with different formats and sizes. Although different, engineering/maintenance companies generally have 6 Scope of function as follows; Mechanical, Electrical, Installation, Utility, Instrumentation, Workshop.
