Depending on the specific product or process involved in a case, an industrial engineering expert witness is typically a licensed professional engineer with extensive experience and expertise in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, structural engineering, biomechanics, human factors, industrial design, and/or earned an advanced degree in industrial engineering. An engineering expert witness must also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people, such as typical jurors. Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon to locate expert witnesses that can support industrial engineering matters and present evidence for a case on behalf of the plaintiff or defendant.

A professor at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln published a paper that eloquently describes industrial engineering:

“Industrial Engineers integrate combinations of people, information, materials, and equipment that produce innovative and efficient organizations. In addition to manufacturing, Industrial Engineers work and consult in every industry, including hospitals, communications, e-commerce, entertainment, government, finance, food, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, sports, insurance, sales, accounting, banking, travel, and transportation.”

Often, matters requiring industrial engineering expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as a patent infringement case, copyright, trade secrets dispute, or a patent proceeding before the International Trade Commission (ITC). A forensic engineer can reverse engineer components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. An industrial engineering expert witness can also be instrumental in a product liability case, such as those involving industrial machinery.

Litigation support by an industrial engineering expert witness could include forensic engineering, failure analysis, accident reconstruction, an expert report, expert opinion, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the attorney team may request a subject matter expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek an industrial engineer or mechanical engineer for pre-litigation consultant work. Whether the case involves product failure, design defect, or intellectual property, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly. The firm has an earned reputation for providing experts with the right balance of engineering experience and testimony to support each unique project and its nuances.
