This 2010 book shows how to design products for all aspects of manufacturability and use multifunctional product development teams and Concurrent Engineering principles to achieve the goals cited in the sub-title: DESIGN FOR LOW COST. The book presents many effective methodologies to design low-cost products by concurrently engineering products in multifunctional teams that will simplify concepts, optimize architecture, optimize the use of modules and off-the-shelf parts, have pre-selected vendors help design custom parts, understand and avoid previous problems, and then thoroughly design for manufacturability for quick launches without expensive change orders. DESIGN IN HIGH QUALITY. Chapter 10 shows how to design quality and reliability into the product with poka-yoke and 50 design guidelines. DESIGN FOR LEAN MANUFACTURE. The book shows how to standardize parts and design products for lean production, JIT, build-to-order, and mass customization. DESIGN QUICKLY FOR FAST PRODUCTION. Chapter 3 shows how thorough up-front work is the key to quickly developing products, avoiding changes, and achieving fast ramps.
