BETTER. FASTER. CHEAPER.
REDUCING TIME AND COST TO MEET CUSTOMER NEEDS.
GE came to us with a design challenge. Their goals were:
1. Take a custom product with well over 25 iterations and design 80% of the functional footprint into 2 devices.
2. Take the average cost of $23,800 and reduce it by half.
3. Reduce the original lead-time of 20 weeks by 6-8 weeks. Lead-time goal was 12 weeks
4. Non-Recurring Engineering(NRE) budget not to exceed $50,000.
Given the fact we had been building these devices for several years, we already had some ideas to work from. We were confident we could accomplish their goals so they invested a little time in gathering the specifications and cornerstone design requirements into a scope of work. We then took the project and ran with it, using our knowledge and experience to develop a plan that would work within their constraints.
