Design for Manufacturing and Assembly, sometimes also known as Simultaneous Engineering, is a process specific to New Product Development and Process Capability Management in which the design phase takes place “simultaneously” between the various company departments.
Such an approach brings significant benefits in terms of cost reduction and time-to-market, but also a significant improvement in the quality of processes. In fact, the application of Lean Six Sigma methodologies often involves a considerable effort in terms of resources. Effort that can be avoided by acting upstream in the design phase.
In this free Webinar we will take a closer look at the fundamental concepts of simultaneous engineering, presenting its advantages but also the associated risks. Furthermore, we will present some application of how Concurrent Engineering has solved significant problems from the point of view of Production Capability.
