An Engineering Masterpiece!
The feeling of seeing a new product manufactured and out in the market is amazing and we all love a bit of innovation and innovative technology. We see the end product and enjoy the difference it makes to our lives.
When we think about how that product made its way to us, we may think about the factory it was made in. We could think about what machines it took to create such a product or part.
Thinking About Engineering Drawings
However, we may not think as far back as the drawings or engineering designs that were the first blueprint. Let’s take a moment to consider the level of detail at this stage that then resulted in the product being finished. For this blog, we took a visit to https://www.makeuk.org and found so much great content around engineering drawings.
The first thing that stood out was the message "You don’t have to be an engineer to be able to read engineering drawings, while learning how to read engineering drawings can be a big advantage for you in your work.”
You may ask why are we so keen to talk about engineering drawings? The answer is that it’s just like the process of marketing!
You don’t need to be a “marketeer” to be able to see or understand the marketing plan for the business, but you can learn the process that powers that plan so you see why your involvement makes such a difference!
What Are Engineering Drawings Used For?
Engineering drawings (aka blueprints, prints, drawings, mechanical drawings) are a rich and specific outline that shows all the information and requirements needed to manufacture an item or product. It is more than simply a drawing; it is a graphical language that communicates ideas and information. (source https://www.makeuk.org/insights/blogs/how-to-read-engineering-drawings-a-simple-guide)
A Marketing Plan To Communicate Ideas & Information

By applying similar thinking, we unlock so much potential for our businesses and our people.
