Designing Your Product for X
This module helps prioritize your product design utilizing case studies and a workshop exercise. Each participant will identify, evaluate and prioritize designing their product for customer use, market acceptance, manufacturability, assembly, durability, reliability, installation, maintenance, logistics.
Developing a Strategic Bill of Materials (BOM)
The module provides the foundation for helping structure an intelligent bill of materials that not only lists all the parts and materials needed to create your product but also supports an accurate determination of your cost of goods sold, cash flow requirements, parts numbering, parts revisions/variations, lead-time estimates, quality tracing, quote timing, etc. Each participant will construct the foundation for their intelligent bill of materials during the workshop and can use it going forward as a product development planning tool.
Developing a Strategic Bill of Process (BOP)
The module provides a unique methodology for developing an intelligent bill of process, a step by step production map for assembling your product including the parts, tools, machines and operations needed to assemble a given product design. This includes a workshop exercise where each participant will map their production process and can use it going forward as a product development planning tool.
Leaning Your Product Design
The module provides a unique methodology for taking a critical assessment of your product design in an effort to reduce complexity and drive out cost. Each participant is guided through a “Parts Value Challenge” exercise that challenges your product design to minimize the number of parts, minimize the number of process steps, design out parts that commonly fail, and target multi-touch operations for process step reductions.
Moving from Proof of Concept to Alpha/Beat Prototypes to Production
The module addresses key questions to consider when designing and testing your next generation prototype or product launch. The session will provide insight on the most common mistakes to avoid, and how to avoid the development of several prototype modifications.
Next Generation Product Design Planning
The module provides a Manufacturing Risk Assessment to support your next generation prototype or product launch. Participants will engage in a Design for Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) exercise that helps determine potential failures in their design, determine the potential for occurrence, severity and detection, and through a unique scoring system determine the potential failures to prioritize for attention in their product development and test plan.
