Abstract:  We will explore the practical application of Lean Design for Cost (LDFC) and its connection to PLM. Clients use LDFC as a holistic approach to product cost reduction, tailoring it to meet the needs of the market and required product profitability. Cost reduction levers include the following: variant/option management, value optimization, specification optimization, concept selection improvement, detailed design optimization and DFMA/DFS. The benefits of LDFC are enabled and advanced through a solid product lifecycle management foundation with mature and standardized processes.
