Unformatted text preview: File: ch04, Chapter 4: Product Design True/False 1. Product design has a tremendous impact on the quality of a manufactured good or service. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 2. An effective design process matches product characteristics with customer requirements. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 3. The design process begins with understanding the customer and identifying customer needs. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 4. Comparing a product or process against the best-in-class is known as benchmarking. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 5. Comparing a product or process against the best-in-class is known as reverse engineering. Ans: False Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 6. Dismantling and inspecting a competitors product to identify design features that might be used to improve your own product is known as reverse engineering. Ans: True Difficulty: Moderate Feedback: Concurrent Design 7. Creating preliminary design models that are quickly tested and either discarded or further refined is known as rapid prototyping. Ans: True Difficulty: Moderate Feedback: The Design Process 8. Form design refers to the physical appearance of a product. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 9. Reliability is the probability that a given part or product will perform its intended function for a specified length of time under adverse operating conditions. Ans: False Difficulty: Moderate Feedback: Design for Robustness 10. A products reliability is a function of the reliabilities of its component parts but not a function of how those parts are arranged. Ans: False Difficulty: Moderate Feedback: The Design Process 11. To increase system reliability redundant parts can be built in to back up a failure. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 12. Products assembled in modules can be easier to repair and maintain. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 13. One quantitative measure of maintainability is mean time to repair (MTTR). Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: The Design Process 14. Modular design is one way to gain the benefits of standardization without losing the advantage of variety and uniqueness. Ans: True Difficulty: Moderate Feedback: The Design Process 15. Establishing multifunctional design teams can help reduce the time-to-market. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: Concurrent Design 16. Concurrent design may involve simultaneously designing products and their production processes. Ans: True Difficulty: Easy Feedback: Concurrent Design 17.
