Length: 1 days
World-class companies to guide the design and development of high-quality products in a step-by-step manner, using analytical tools and case studies use the techniques listed in this course.
Some of the topics of special interest include new product creation strategy and process, creative design techniques, principles of design for manufacturing, design for assembly/disassembly, optimization, and ergonomics.
In view of the recent development in lean manufacturing and information technology, emphasis on optimization tools, FMEA and Root Cause Analysis are important. A good product design course should familiarize the product designers and students with the concepts, techniques and tools of new product design and development.
This online, instructor-supported course should relate the topics of creating a self-directed product team, following the steps of creative design methodology, learning the tools of production process, identifying the integrated issues of design and production and finally managing product innovation.
Students are required to obtain the book, Design for Product Success, written by Devdas Shetty.
