Summary of Key Points and Terminology – Chapter 12 A typical structured product development process consists of idea generation, preliminary concept development, product/process development, full-scale production, product introduction, and market evaluation. Concurrent , or simultaneous, engineering is an effective approach for managing the product development process by using multi-functional teams to help remove organizational barriers between departments and therefore reduce product development time. Design reviews help to facility product development by stimulating discussion, raising questions, and generating new ideas Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) represents a set of tools and methodologies used in the product development process for ensuring that goods and services will meet customer needs and achieve performance objectives, and that the processes used to make and deliver them achieve Six Sigma capability. DFSS consists of concept development, design development, design optimization, and design verification. These activities are often incorporated into a variation of the DMAIC process, known as DMADV, which stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, and Verify. Concept development is the process of applying scientific, engineering, and business knowledge to produce a basic functional design that meets both customer needs and manufacturing or service delivery requirements. This involves developing creative ideas, evaluating them, and selecting the best concept. Concept engineering (CE) is a focused process for discovering customer requirements and using them to select superior product or service concepts that meet those requirements. Steps include understanding the customer’s environment, converting understanding into requirements, operationalizing what has been learned, concept generation, and concept selection Quality Function Deployment (QFD) is a planning process to guide the design, manufacturing, and marketing of goods by integrating the voice of the customer throughout the organization. A set of matrices is used to relate the voice of the customer to a product’s technical requirements, component requirements, process
