Machine Shop Job Process

To meet increasing demands for quality and performance, the Machine Shop has recently instituted a 100% quality control system whereby all jobs go through a final inspection process to verify dimensions and tolerances per customer specifications. Finally, an electronic satisfaction survey is e-mailed to the customers for improvement feedback. Your response is always appreciated.

Remember: Students should complete our shop orientation and be registered with the shop before submitting their first job!

Step 1

Submit a job request using our online system. You will also need to provide an account number to bill against at this time. You will be asked to select a priority during the submission process. Remember high priority job rates are $50/hr.

Step 2

Meet with the shop manager (if needed) to discuss particulars and to provide drawings. E-mailed CAD data files are acceptable. You will also need to provide an account number to bill against at this time. Dennis.Golabiewski@asu.edu

Step 3

The shop manager will analyze your needs and develop a cost estimate and estimated start date. The estimated date to completion will depend on the number of high priority jobs- the larger number of high priority jobs the longer the estimated date to completion for the normal jobs. This variable can also change the delivery date of standard priority jobs after quotes have been framed. Jobs will be placed in the queue after they are approved. If there is a delay in approving jobs they will loose their position in the queue also resulting in delays.

Step 4

If this is a high priority job, we will guarantee that we will get your job done within the time frame required by you as long as it is reasonable to do so do with respect to our resources.

Step 5

Dennis will email the Faculty sponsor to confirm that the estimate is acceptable, and if so, the job will be placed in our job queue.

Step 6

The number of machinists dedicated to standard jobs will depend on the number of high priority jobs in the queue. High priority jobs always take precedence over standard jobs, so that the larger number of high priority jobs in the queue, the fewer the number of machinists dedicated to standard jobs, However, at least one machinist will always be dedicated to standard jobs at all times.

Step 7

We cannot guarantee that the job can be completed within your required time frame, but we will do our best and are constantly refining our processes to improve our responsiveness.

Step 8

At the completion of the job, you will be notified and your account will automatically be billed.
