    Building Testability Into Legacy Code

    Industry studies say that about a quarter of software development cost is spent on Testing. Moreover the investment in terms of time and money increases exponentially with the age and size of the software product or solution. As the code is continually stretched to satisfy changing requirements; it develops resistance...

    Should Costing: Identify Should Cost Elements Early In The Design Phase, And Enable Cost Down Initiatives

    Competition and the need to improve margins require organizations to constantly review product costs and identify opportunities for cost reduction. Since a major component of product cost comprises material and processing costs, this area requires specific focus. Zero based costing has been around for quite some time, but the availability...

    Application of Lean in Product and Manufacturing Engineering

    Shortening product development lead time, while reducing the cost and increasing reliability, is a perpetual challenge of engineering. This, coupled with changing consumer needs, doesn't make product development any easier. While manufacturing function has embraced the lean philosophy with relative ease and enthusiasm, it is a struggle for engineering due...

    The Why and How of Design for Manufacturability Review Automation

    'Design For Manufacturability' (DFM) is a methodology that involves designing with an intent to minimize the cost of production and time-to-market, without compromising on the quality of the product. Various studies have proved that an error detected and rectified during the design stage costs almost 100-1000 times less than when...
