Manufacturing costs are the largest challenge for manufacturing companies in high-wage countries. To reduce the manufacturing costs significantly, all areas of the product development process have to be taken into consideration. This tool course teaches the most important instruments for cost reduction in product development using concrete project and product examples.
A methodical approach to estimate and reduce manufacturing costs is taught using a combination of theory and case studies. The participants learn the most important tools for cost reduction in development and practice their application in concrete case studies.
Provide methodical approach using best-practices from concrete project examples - As-is analysis – the “systematics” of cost reduction - Potential analysis – the “creativity” of cost reduction - Cost transparency and visualization - Development for manufacturing / assembly and cost - Lean production
