Design to Cost
Design-To-Cost (DTC) is one of the most important aspects of a product design. Engineers know how to design cost effective products in terms of engineering and production but tend to overlook the other aspects of Design-To-Cost (DTC).
In most cases purchasing is involved much too late and, therefore, has no impact on the design. If you only knew in advance you could have made some minor design changes and enabled you to buy alternative parts, use a cost effective way to manufacture, use cheaper materials. Make sure to involve purchasing early in the product design process.
Pro Outsourcing consultants can reverse this process working closely with the design team to significantly reduce the cost.
