Industry is increasingly facing the challenge of reducing its time-to-market schedules and at the same time satisfying customers fully in terms of performance and value for money. "Quality Through Design" takes a new look at what design really is and proposes changes in the way the designer does his work. The book centres around the concept of managing the critical functional parameters of a design and explains how these functional aspects can be evaluated prior to testing. In this way the book reflects modern thinking that quality must be incorporated into products before manufacturing. The author demonstrates how, through the establishment of a process to ensure that the quality of a product is monitored throughout its life-cycle, the expensive sequence of "design-build-test" could be reduced, thus enabling the manufacturer to deliver high quality products at a lower cost and in a shorter time. In addition, he addresses the role of management in the process in order to ensure proper monitoring and decision making as the design progresses.
