Engineering organization in almost all industries are dealing with costly and time-consuming design changes occurring at later stages of product development. As per our estimates at least 30%-50% of design time and effort is spent on “rework” though these Engineering Changes.
Though some design changes are unavoidable and arise due to disruptive factors outside the control of the organization such as stricter regulations and design norms, changing customer needs or product price reduction strategies etc. The remaining issues fall under completely preventable category. This info graphic helps to explain a bit about the possible causes of rework in product engineering that can be prevented and its impact on overall design time.
