Reducing Time for the Product Development Process by Evaluation in the Phase of Solution Searching

B. Jokele, D. K. Fuchs


Less and less time is available for product development process. To prevent product failures and the resulting time intensive and cost intensive iteration steps, some preventive measures must be taken. Within the scope of quality management, FMEA anticipates possible problems concerning product and process properties. Nevertheless, in industrial practice designed products can have failures which were not considered within FMEA. The time pressure is immense, and efforts which do not make a contribution to a successful solution are regarded as lost time.This paper introduces a systematic approach to troubleshooting, with the aim of reducing the time for solution searching by considering the feasibility of ideas at an early stage.
