This is the 1st English version of a longtime paintings on cost-driven product layout and improvement. It deals attempted and proven equipment for figuring out, influencing and decreasing product expenses. The method and association of price administration, in addition to the consequences on each one form of expense are defined. utilizing this information the product developer can think accountability for bills. there are many examples and certain derivation of results.

Example text

Cost-effective screw? g. • How to calculate manufacturing costs? Fig. 2-3. Task-specific classification of the components of cost management As in every learning process, there will be mistakes and setbacks that should be taken into account. The methods, the help, and the data that a detail designer needs are different from those the chief of product development requires. Different tasks call for different methods, as shown by the example in Fig. 2-3 and discussed in Sect. 4. Similar to production planning, there should also be methods or information planning that answer the following questions: Who needs what information?

3 Applying methods and tools Although many effective cost management methods have been developed over the years, only a few have actually been adopted in general industrial practice. A serious knowledge deficit exists with regard to these available methods (Sect. 4) and, generally, only the methods that are in fashion are utilized. Their introduction is often random and lacking a full understanding of the context in which they should be applied. Thus, failures are seemingly preprogrammed, which, in turn, increases aversion to methodical procedures.

Teamwork Development and production of technical systems is driven today, at all levels, by intensive cooperation in teams. A team here implies a group of people who are goal-oriented, usually working against a deadline, and working jointly on the solution of a problem [Bor96], • Advantages of teamwork As opposed to one person working on a job, interdisciplinary teamwork is distinguished by a higher quantity and quality of ideas and opinions, as well as greater knowledge and a broader judgment basis.
