the Definitive Book Product Development
WHAT MAKES THIS THE BEST DFM BOOK EVER
This 600 page book adds what the publisher says is already he definitive work on product development and now the Second Edition adds 100 new and unique pages that have never been published before, thus resulting in the following:
Thorough manufacturability can be complete products in half the budget with savings ranging from half to one-tenth in nine categories (3.8).
Research and early product development start with Manufacturable Research (3.9), that optimizes concept/architecture (3.3.9), assures part availability (3.9.7) and process availability, (3.9.10), achievable tolerances (3.9.8), and avoids work force challenges (184.108.40.206) on hard-to-build products (3.9.9), all of which can start providing immediate scalable, commercialization results. The design process emphasizes thorough up front work (Chapter 3) in complete multi-functional tams (Chapter 2) that cane quickly scale up production without limits, delays, or extra cost (4.8)) to avoid shortages by design by design.
Product development improvement champions and implementers will also benefit from Section 3.11 (and its 10 sub-sections) on generating interest in designing better products for manufacturability. All this can be applied right away on a project team (11.7) in its own micro-climate (220.127.116.11).
EADING-EDGE BOOKS BY
DR. DAVID M ANDERSON, p.e., CMC, fASME
New 2020 book to be published June 2,
which can be pre-ordered now AT:
"Design for Manufacturability: How to Use Concurrent Engineering to Rapidly Develop Low-Cost, High-Quality Products for Lean Production," Second Edition (690 pages, Productivity Press)
for Manufacturability: How to Use Concurrent Engineering to Rapidly Develop
Low-Cost, High-Quality Products for Lean Production is
still the definitive work on DFM – this second edition extends the proven
methodology to the most advanced product development process with the addition
of the following new, unique, and original topics, which have never been
addressed previously. These topics show you how to:
cost from 1/2 to 1/10 in 9 categories -- with ways to remove that much cost from
product charges and pricing.
innovation -- starting with
Manufacturable Research and learning from the new section on scalability, you
will learn how to design products and processing equipment to scale quickly to
any growth levels.
product families that can be built “on-demand” in platform cells that also
“mass customize” products to-order
Lean production easier to implement with much more effective results while
making build-to-order practical with spontaneous supply chains and eliminating
forecasted inventory by including updated chapter on “Designing
Products for Lean Production.”

Many product scenarios has been worked out for several industries and will be published later in "The Build-to-Order & Mass Customization Case book." These specific methodologies are available now for Build-to-Order consulting and Build-to-Order seminar clients.
Dr. Anderson's "how to" chapter from the forthcoming book,
"Advances in Product Family and Product Platform Design," shows how to
develop product families, "Building, Supplying, and Designing
Product Families." can be downloaded now for $29.95 at the Springer

Dr. Anderson also wrote the first "how to" book on Mass Customization: "Agile Product Development for Mass Customization; How to Develop and Deliver Products for Mass Customization, Niche Markets, JIT, Build-to-Order, and Flexible Manufacturing," by David M. Anderson, with an introduction by B. Joseph Pine II, published by McGraw-Hill in 1996 is now out of print. The book has been printed in a Chinese translation (simplified character Mandarin) from McGraw-Hill's Singapore office: www.asia-mcgraw-hill.com.sg
