This article presents some discussions on the role of production engineers in quality and reliability planning and control in the context of the manufacturing sector in Singapore. Superior productive efficiency in manufacturing can only be achieved through effective quality control and reliability planning. To be able to compete with other and more advanced countries, Singapore has to emphasise modern manufacturing methods, like automated, computer‐integrated and flexible manufacturing systems. Therefore, concerted efforts are now being taken to train adequately skilled and professional manpower to operate and manage such manufacturing systems. The role of production engineers in operating and managing the modern manufacturing systems has thus become more important and demanding.
