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.

IMPROVED PRODUCT LIFETIME
- The 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, backward compatibility, etc.).
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 a redesign can eliminate +60% of measures on a part-part interface.
