Design for Manufacturability: How to Use Concurrent by David M. Anderson

By David M. Anderson

Design for Manufacturability: tips to Use Concurrent Engineering to swiftly advance reasonably cheap, top quality items for Lean Production exhibits easy methods to use concurrent engineering groups to layout items for all points of producing with the bottom fee, the very best quality, and the fastest time to reliable creation. Extending the innovations of design for manufacturability to an complex product improvement version, the ebook explains tips on how to at the same time make significant advancements in these kind of product improvement objectives, whereas permitting potent implementation of Lean creation and caliber programs.

Illustrating the best way to utilize classes realized from past tasks, the e-book proposes quite a few advancements to present product improvement practices, schooling, and administration. It outlines powerful approaches to standardize components and fabrics, retailer money and time with off-the-shelf elements, and enforce a standardization software. It additionally spells out easy methods to paintings with the buying division early directly to choose components and fabrics that maximize caliber and availability whereas minimizing half lead-times and making sure wanted functionality.

  • Describes easy methods to layout households of goods for Lean construction, build-to-order, and mass customization
  • Emphasizes the significance of quantifying all product and overhead expenditures after which presents effortless how you can quantify overall cost
  • Details dozens of layout instructions for product layout, together with meeting, fastening, attempt, fix, and maintenance
  • Presents various layout directions for designing components for manufacturability
  • Shows the best way to design in quality and reliability with many caliber directions and sections on mistake-proofing (poka-yoke)

Describing easy methods to layout components for optimum manufacturability and compatibility with manufacturing unit techniques, the ebook offers an immense photo viewpoint that emphasizes designing for the bottom overall fee and time to reliable creation. After studying this e-book you'll know how to lessen overall charges, ramp up speedy to quantity construction with out delays or additional expense, and have the capacity to scale up creation swiftly in order to not restrict growth.

Sample text

It is a bad phrase at IBM. ”26 Encourage job rotation. ”27 Empower an effective project leader to make decisions as they need to be made, thus minimizing dependence on design reviews. Encourage feedback and be receptive to all news about product developments. Create an open culture where issues can be raised and discussed early with the focus on issue resolution. When the current Ford Americas President Mark Fields came to Ford from IBM, he was discouraged from airing problems at meetings unless his boss approved first!

It is important for product development teams to have the right focus when developing products. • Customers’ needs, not on the company programs, competition, or technology. • Proactive resolution of issues early rather than reactive resolution later. • Problem avoidance rather than problem solving. • Eliminating engineering change orders rather than streamlining the change control process. • Core competencies and new and pivotal aspects of the design instead of reinventing the entire wheel and diluting resources with low-­ leverage activities.

Section V: Customer Satisfaction Chapter 10 shows how to design in quality and reliability with 34 quality guidelines and sections on mistake-­proofing (poka-­yoke) and designing to minimize errors. The chapter also explains that product quality is a function of the cumulative exponential effect of part quality and part quantity. Preface • xxxi Section VI: Implementation Chapter 11 shows how to implement DFM, including: determining the current state of how well products are designed for manufacturability; estimating how much could be improved by implementing DFM; getting management support and buy-­in; arranging DFM training; forming a task force to implement DFM; stopping counterproductive policies; implementing DFM at the team and individual levels; and implementing standardization and total cost measurements.
