ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the use of the Design for Logistics, Design for Assembly, and Design for Manufacture techniques in a manufacturing environment that has become an increasingly competitive and volatile place. The solution lies in applying the techniques in an integrated and timely manner, with all team members focused and committed to the overall business strategy For some companies, brand is extremely important. An understanding of what features the customer is likely to expect in a product is extremely important. Marketing should be aware of future needs, and should anticipate these needs in new product design recommendations. There can also be a need to spend money in specific markets on specific features. The finance plan is ultimately the most important, as any business is ultimately in existence for one reason, and that is to make money.
