about

With more emphasis being placed on the cost and quality of new products and on reducing the lead time to develop them, attention is turning to the increasingly important topic of design for manufacturing (DFM). This involves the collaboration among research and development, manufacturing, andother company functions and is aimed at accelerating the new product development process from product conception to market introduction. A company can create a competitive advantage for itself by managing the process and its related organizational dynamics effectively. This collection of essaysfocuses on the development of strategic capabilities through use of DFM tools and practices, the role of DFM in specific product development phases, and the social, political, and cultural context within which DFM is introduced.

This book includes chapters by experts who focus on the development of strategic capabilities, such as the systematic development and introduction of new technologies into products and processes, as well as the use of appropriate tools and techniques to facilitate communication and problem-solving between design and manufacturing. Other topics covered include learning from experience; the social, political, and cultural contexts within which key players interact; and the degree to which management of inform
