New Product Development presents a unique cross-discipline approach to new product development and goes further than most ‘product design’ books by drawing together the various strands that make up ‘total design’ now the accepted way to develop new products.The successful development of new products has become a complex process involving contributions from a range of different disciplines. Rarely is one individual responsible for the inception, creation and realisation of a new product, for today the inherent complexity of products, markets and the processes through which they are developed dictates that a number of functions, each with their own roles, work together to create the product. This book presents a cross-discipline discussion of new product development, its organisation, its management, the key stages and key functions involved.

The concurrent engineering (CE) approach to product design and development has two major steps: establishing the product realization process, or taxonomy, and applying this methodology to design and develop the total product system. This first volume of the two volume set articulates CE philosophy by illustrating the differences between the best methodologies and what is currently being practiced. Examines the Japanese transformation from rigid, culture-driven companies to world leaders in quality; offers an understanding of the eight primary components of concurrency and simultaneity; describes modeling the concurrent engineering environment and its five essential components; covers the development of a cooperative work-group environment spanned by four concurrent teams.

A thorough, original guide to using Concurrent Engineering principles to develop products that meet customer needs — and to do so as quickly and efficiently as possible.This book shows how CE encompasses manufacturing competitiveness, life-cycle management, process reengineering, cooperative workgroups, systems engineering, information modeling, and product, process and organization integration. This book also identifies, for the first time, 25 fundamental CE metrics and measures. These are categorized into four groups: simulations and analysis, product feasibility and quality assessment, design for X-ability assessment, and process quality assessment.

This single source reference offers a pragmatic and accessible approach to the basic methods and procedures used in the manufacturing and design of modern electronic products. Providing a stategic yet simplified layout, this handbook is set up with an eye toward maximizing productivity in each phase of the eletronics manufacturing process. Not only does this handbook inform the reader on vital issues concerning electronics manufacturing and design, it also provides practical insight and will be of essential use to manufacturing and process engineers in electronics and aerospace manufacturing. In addition, electronics packaging engineers and electronics manufacturing managers and supervisors will gain a wealth of knowledge.

This massive guide provides comprehensive, single-source coverage on the full range of activities that meet in the manufacturing engineering process, including management, product and process design, tooling, equipment selection, facility planning and layout, plant construction, materials handling and storage, method analysis, time standards, and production control.

The goal of the world class company is to produce a product or service that offers customers the highest quality at the lowest cost and in the shortest time possible. Product Design Review describes a highly effective method for quality control in product design, as well as its applications in a wide variety of business settings. Take care of the problems that erupt during product development by nipping them in the bud (during the design stage). Takashi Ichida describes a powerful tool insuring quality at concept stage, thereby eliminating redesign, retooling, rework, and error throughout the production process. The program he describes can be carried out through every phase of new product development – – from product planning to design, production, and marketing. Also explains how you can incorporate your customer feedback into the next production cycle.
