Here, you'll find out how these functional areas must cooperate to balance conflicting priorities and keep customer needs as the foremost priority. You'll get a companywide perspective on systematic and preventative quality planning. In addition, you'll learn how to incorporate market research into product development activities; reduce product development time; enhance the total design process - including reliability testing and design verification; improve manufacturing planning, reduce manufacturing costs, and increase product quality; implement risk management methods - including contingency plans for new technologies; assure success in the marketplace with postproduction follow-up and ongoing product improvement planning; and perform activity-based costing, value analysis, quality function deployment, failure mode and effects analysis, lean production, and capacity constraint analysis.
With this in-depth resource, you'll understand all the steps your company can take, in every phase of product development, to boost profitability, customer satisfaction, and competitiveness in a global marketplace.
