Course Overview

Every organization must design its production system. This process starts with the design of the product or service to be produced.

It is important to remember that the way a product or service is designed affects its appeal to the customers it also affects how easy or expensive operations will be. Design has become a critical aspect of product development for many companies.

However some product design are difficult to execute properly, when the ski manufacture VOLANT began manufacturing an unconventional type of skis from steel, skiers began snapping them up, delighted with their flexibility and grip of the snow, however producing the skis turned out to be a nightmare and many parts had to be scrapped or reworked, expenses mounted. Volant hired a design engineer ex-Boeing he made a small design change which allowed for more tolerances, the design change had a big effect with the company going into the black in the first year. To prevent such problems in the first place a growing number of businesses are using Design for Manufacturability and Assembly (DEMA)

This course will highlight the distinct benefits of applying such techniques.


The course is designed to help and advice on developing design skills for the design engineers. Not so much on how to use the many software programs and hardware but more on how the design engineers can develop expertise and knowledge and understanding required to identify and research the important issues to develop a specification.
