Introduction

Small family structural design and technical services business, comprising of father (Roy) and son (Conrad). The business was formed in 1994 and operated in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, in particular in the Tea Tree Gully (TTG) area and surrounds, until 2014 when we moved everything to Maitland on the Yorke Peninsula. The trading name was solely Roy Harrison & Associates until 2009 when we registered the company name MiScion Pty Ltd: now the name alternates between the two.

Technical Services

Primarily structural/mechanical design and associated, drafting services and computer software development.

With formal education in industrial, manufacturing and mechanical engineering we have potential to provide assistance in more areas than structures. Such areas include: total quality management (TQM), statistical process control, inventory management, materials requirement planning (MRP), manufacturing resource planning (MRP II), design-for-manufacture (DFM), design-for-assembly (DFA), agricultural engineering, business logistics, Business Computer Systems Development.

No project too small.

Machines are structures which move. Non-machine structures are mechanisms which are locked.

NB: Structural/mechanical design involves the technical sciences of engineering mechanics and the mechanics of the strength and stability of materials. (Also note few if any persons have a bachelor degree in structural engineering, the degree is either in mechanical or civil engineering. Graduates learn about specific technologies (eg. cranes, antenna masts, silos, storage tanks and bins, industrial platforms, bridges, buildings) after graduation.)
