Abstract

Several studies confirm the benefits of anticipating the problems that might occur in the products lifecycle to the conceptual phase of the integrated product development (IPD) process. The challenge posed by the IPD process is to develop adequate tools and procedures that make feasible the required anticipation. One problem faced by the IPD, is to control the variation of the product manufacturing process that impacts directly both product cost and delivery schedules. Corrective actions must be anticipated and carried out to reduce this variability and to increase product quality right from the beginning of the product development process. This paper presents the Design for Quality Costs - DFQC - a method for minimizing the non-quality costs of the new products through the anticipation of improvements in the product manufacturing process and/or product design. The proposed method is also based on the concepts of Lean Engineering Thinking and DFSS - Design for Six Sigma. This paper also shows that the proposed method can be linked to the products virtual environment built by Digital Manufacturing software applications commercially available.
