The design of products, processes and systems is the locus of successful time-based competition. This design process which focuses on problem-solving and continued innovation brings together a multitude of variables including customer needs, scheduling, modeling and process analysis which must be implemented concurrently to be successful. This volume aims to provide product developers and designers with an understanding of this entire spectrum in light of the critical need for faster new product development. The author begins with detailed coverage of process modelling and analysis, and design modelling and analysis before getting into quality, reliability and scheduling. It includes industry applications, real world problems and solutions.
