Correct term for project implementation

Correct term for project implementation

Correct term for project implementation

Hi there!
When an order for gear manufacturing is accepted, certain steps must be taken to turn the drawing into parts. These steps may include creating of manufacturing drawings, designing and building the fixtures and tooling, writing the CNC programs. This work is made only once for this first trial batch. I have difficulties to find a correct term for all these operations and decided to ask here, as I know that there are people here with native English and manufacturing background. Is it called "project/job/part production implementation", "manufacturing engineering", "manufacturing preparatory work", or something completely different?

Thank you in advance for your help, will be much appreciated!

RE: Correct term for project implementation

I refer to this as "Manufacturing Engineering".

There are other responsibilities within the umbrella of Manufacturing Engineering, but this is a big one.

RE: Correct term for project implementation

Thank you for your input. Does the "project implementation" sound bad, funny or possibly misleading? I ask because I have seen it on a dozen of web pages.

Hi spigot

If it’s for a trial build you could call it “Design & Development”, or “Prototyping”
