Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance
In today's highly competitive and liability minded environment, Design Reviews (DR) are a must for all major mobility industries such as Automotive, DOD, Aerospace, Agriculture, Recreation, Marine and Rail. While Design Reviews are becoming increasingly important in product liability litigation, they also serve as an effective way to transfer organizational best practices for specific concerns and issues.
This hands-on workshop describes how formal Design Reviews can be used in conjunction with other new product development methods to improve product designs by uncovering potential problems before they are discovered at a later stage of development or application when the costs of correction are much higher. A range of effective techniques for organizing and conducting Design Reviews will be presented. Participants will receive specific guidance and tools to assist them in tailoring Design Reviews to reflect their own organization's requirements. Topics are applicable to a broad range of new product development programs, ranging from components to complete systems, for both OEMs and suppliers.LEARN THEN DO - In this workshop the attendee not only learns the essential elements of a robust Design Review process but also has the opportunity to apply these principles in the conduct of a mock Design Review. Participants will also experience some of the frequently encountered real-world issues that distract from accomplishing good results. During these reviews the attendee will experience each of the roles in a typical Design Review; leader, facilitator, recorder, and participant. An after-action review will be performed following each DR session to discuss positive outcomes and identify opportunities for improvement.
