Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 990 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Design for Manufacturability improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 990 standard requirements:
- Has review of the design identified problems with the requirements, as missing requirements, ambiguous requirements, extraneous requirements, untestable requirements, or implied requirements?
- Will all of the assembly be done at the manufacturers facility or at upstream suppliers, or will some be done by others farther downstream in the distribution channel or even by the user?
- Does your organization concur that the fast track designation is still applicable and the NDA will be considered for priority review in keeping with the fast track designation?
- What provisions have you made for communicating information sufficient for design and manufacture to manufacturers of consumer and professional equipment?
- Does the supplier ensure design and development outputs include data for the identification, manufacture, inspection, use and maintenance of the product?
- Is low-cost manufacturing overseas really the most cost-effective solution for your product, or could your organization benefit more by making it here?
- What is the average cost of assembly and the effective capacity of the system compared to one where every assembly passes the tests the first time?
- What percentage of your annual revenue is derived from products and services, which are created and manufactured for your own branding and design?
- How would current contracting models and building requirements need to change, in order to best facilitate procurement from a product platform?
- Can architects learn from methods used in Industrial Design to make architectural processes and communications more efficient and systematic?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Design for Manufacturability investments work better.
This Design for Manufacturability All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
