Prevention of Defects and Customer Dissatisfaction using Quick Design Review 2011-01-0510
We have constructed a design review system in which Full Process and Quick Design Review processes are selectively used according to the degree of newness in a design change. The Full Process Design Review is conducted for a review of system or part designs having a high level of newness and the tools and process used in this review were standardized. The Quick Design Review is newly developed design review process that could be conducted in a quicker and simpler manner for designs involving a medium level of newness in order to effectively prevent design-related problems. The Quick Design Review uses a changes list and Design Review Based on Failure Mode (DRBFM)  worksheets to focus on the changed points. This method enables the engineers involved to identify problems and to devise solutions efficiently and effectively through discussions. In order to promote the global deployment of Quick DR, a qualification system has been introduced and training programs have been conducted globally. This paper describes the development of Quick Design Review process including an actual application example.
