Product development teams employ much method?s and tool?s as they design, test, and manufacturing a new (or improve) product. It is important that the product development team understand how their design and decisions affect manufacture system performances. Having this feedback early in the design processes avoids rework loop?s needed to solve problems of manufacturing capacity or cycle time. The team can incorporate this information and associated costs into a design decision problem aimed at choosing the best possible product design. It is clear that the product design, which requires a specific set of manufacturing operations, has a huge impact on the manufacturing cycle time. Reducing manufacturing cycle time has many benefits, including but not limited to lower inventory, reduced costs, improved product quality, faster response to customer orders, increased flexibility and a reduced time-to-market. Design for Production (DFP) refers to methods that evaluate a product design by comparing its manufacturing requirements to available capacity and estimating manufacturing cycle time. DFP can be used to design the product in a way that decreases required capacity, reduces the manufacturing cycle time, or otherwise simplifies production. To understand how a product design impacts manufacturing system performance, this research develops analytical (not simulation) models to quantify how introducing a new product increases congestion in the manufacturing system. It presents approaches that use this information intelligently and make suggestions on product redesign and manufacturing system improvements.
