Longer-Lasting Product Designs Cost Reductions and More Functionality are Possible

Can companies do anything to give their products a longer life and more functionality, and still reduce costs? This session offers an inside look into how product design can improve "shelf life." It also describes how product re-designs can save money and how a streamlined design increases functionality all at the same time. Such an approach begins with a "manufacturability review." Conducted by an experienced design engineer, such a review will explore product development and direction, design opportunities and their effect on the bottom line. This session will also discuss how the pressure to "over design" a product and tight development deadlines push engineers to create "extra robust" versions of existing products, the resulting negative implications and how to overcome such situations.
