Abstract

Demand for shortened design cycles, higher quality and reliability, reduced production costs and at the same time maintaining predictable, on-time delivery of new products and services, has forced companies to re-examine their product design and development processes. This paper presents a DfX model developed and implemented at Baker Hughes Incorporated. The DfX model is aimed at developing products and services that meet or exceed the business case by horizontally integrating experts from all relevant enterprise disciplines and holistically focusing on reducing life cycle costs early in development. It allows effective reaction to customer demands by focusing on rules and data based decisions throughout the entire product lifecycle.

Keywords: Design for excellence, DfX, life cycle cost, design methodology, conceptual design selection
