Product Redesign

Product Redesign

Maximize profit for next generation of products

Redesign powered by Robust Design leads to next level value engineering. For example, product redesigning leads to cost reductions while achieving benefits within sustainability and product performance. Balancing product performance and cost leads to maximum product profit.

Example

Product Redesign - Step by Step process

Typical process for a product redesign. Typical either an outsourced effort - or a co-creation effort (to sustain robust design learnings at the given company)

1.
Baseline

3-9 weeks

2.
Target Setting

1-3 weeks

3.
Entering New Product Development loop

Timeline depending product complexity & targets

  • Establishment of product baseline – see the Product Review service
  • Product benchmark
  • Design improvement recommendations & concept proposals
  • Setting of redesign scope (e.g. quality target, cost target, performance target) and constraints (e.g. reuse of production equipment/processes/suppliers, reuse of assembly equipment, backwards compatibility, etc.)

Robust Redesign = Radical Value Engineering

Our Robust Design methods are a lever for radical new leaps in value engineering.

Our redesign approach often reveal new insights to companies that have driven continuous improvement efforts for many years. We stive to break with the incremental improvement mindset by brining new know-how to the table.

Elements in the RD8 redesign:

The RD8 product redesign approach links to the unique metric, the RD8 Index, which quantifies the robustness of a given product. A low RD8 Index represents a robust design. A high RD8 Index represents a sensitive and/or complex product.

 

Product complexity and sensitivity are closely linked to product part cost, development, maintenance, and production efforts. A high RD8 Index reflects that too much information is tied up in the product – thus stating unneeded additional requirements. See an example of how redesign can eliminate +60% of measures on a part-part interface.
