Design-to-Cost methods have major potential to lower your product development costs.
Waiting to think about design costs until after you get manufacturer quotes could be costing you time and resources in redesign work. Instead, try considering design costs from the beginning. The design phase only accounts for 7% of total product development costs but holds the greatest potential to lower costs and save time.
Design-to-cost methods consider cost parameters at the start, ensuring your team is designing for cost-efficiency alongside performance — generating savings you can pass on to your customers.
