80% of a product’s manufacturing cost is locked-in by the end of the conceptual design phase. Once a design concept is ‘fixed’ it becomes increasingly difficult to change aspects of that design. So how can we quickly evaluate costs at this stage of the process – a point at which the design is likely to vary with the choice of material, and when the detailed information required to run a cost model has not been defined?
In this webinar, we’ll explore how you can use CES Selector to quickly compare the technical, economic, and environmental performance of different material options. Consider the variation in design associated with the use of different materials and estimate the cost of the material and process chain, in the early stages of development.
What you will learn
- Identify optimal material candidates for an application (in terms of both performance and cost) in the early stages of development
- Evaluate the variation in design associated with the use of different materialst
- Quickly estimate the cost of the material and process chain for different solutions
Who should take part?
- Product engineering, product design, material specialists, research and development, innovation groups.
