Details

This is a two parts lecture series. Many companies have begun their lean journey and have implemented lean manufacturing methods. The next step is applying lean to other processes including product development. While Lean New Product Development (Lean NPD) does focus on customer value and eliminating waste, it is also a front loaded, knowledge based approach. From a quality and reliability perspective, this should be viewed positively because it offers the opportunity to do the up front tasks needed to ensure robust and reliable products. This 2-part webinar provides in introduction to Lean NPD and shows how it can be applied to reliability requirements definition, design decisions, risk assessment and mitigation, critical characteristics and process control, product testing, and failure analysis / corrective action to improve product reliability and robustness. Part 1 introduces the key elements of lean new product development, reliability requirements definition, Lean Quality Function Deployment (QFD), set based design, change point identification, and integration of reliability tasks into the decision flow and value stream.
