To provide effective resolution of the client's immediate and temporary design  or manufacturing engineering needs. To provide  documentation consistent with the client's needs - and suggest a level of  documentation that allows the client the freedom to choose the most effective means to modify the product in the future.

    Fred Conklin, Engineering Services has been an independent electronic engineering design contractor/consultant for over twenty years.  Fred Conklin has designed monitoring systems for explosive and poisonous gasses, automated test systems, telephony equipment, analog and digital audio systems, and medical devices.  Fred has supervised mixed development groups (mechanical, electronic, and software design) of up to 5 engineers and technicians. Currently, he has a number of engineers from many disciplines available for use as sub-contractors, all of whom have non-disclosure agreements with Fred Conklin, Engineering Services that protect the end client. 

     Fred has developed, both hardware and software,  many Automated Functional Test systems.  Automated Functional Test brings a consistency of results to the production test floor that is unsurpassed.  As a management tool, Automated Functional Test provides the most efficient method of reporting problem areas - in the product design itself, vendor quality, or in the production process.  The capabilities of Automated Functional Test can be adapted to many different types of laboratory environments, providing greater accuracy and versatility in the acquisition and analysis of experimental data.
