What is Design Profit?
Design Profit is a mapping tool used to deliver metrics that objectively evaluate product designs and develop directional business cases for competing design concepts. The Design Profit map illustrates relationships between parts and processes and enhances the understanding of design and manufacturing content. Design Profit exposes waste and inefficiency in a product’s design, quantifies total accounted cost of a design, and indicates root cause of high cost offenders. It facilitates part count reduction and design simplification and elegance. The result is lower cost, better quality, higher profit and the benefits are delivered up front, before manufacturing begins.
