The RD8 new product development process
Design of new mechanical products 25%-50% faster than normal, with a new set of features and technologies, competitive price tag and no room for failure requires a new product development process that is robust in itself and delivers reliable robust products time after time.
DESIGN OF NEW MECHANICAL PRODUCTS 25%-50% FASTER THAN NORMAL
The RD8 new product development is built on the robust engineering system that enables product development professionals to take the right decisions by objective measures within the 8 robust design disciplines. Each discipline has its unique metric and is aggregated to one metric: the RD8 index, which summarizes the overall product development robustness – from the early concept stage to detailed design. Linked with data sources this drives next level value engineering. The system aids to synthesize robust solutions to maximize product profit and provides transparency across functions and locations to prevent detours and optimize time-to-quality.
