The Value of Increasing Engineering Bandwidth

Imagine the Impact of Reducing Non-Value-Added Engineering Work in Machine Design

How much better would your machine designs be if engineers wasted less time on non-value-added work?

Engineering work is critical to competitive machine designs. However, as designs become more complex, engineering decisions become more challenging. Unfortunately, engineers waste so much time on non-value-added work, it impacts their bandwidth. Consequently, it can be hard to identify conflicts and find the time to fully evaluate essential engineering decisions affecting quality and cost. As a result, many struggle to avoid cost overruns and risks to delivery dates.

About the Research

Based on a survey of 228 manufacturers, this research study examines machine design practices, where engineers waste time, and best practices to avoid non-value-added work. These best practices will improve your ability to produce higher quality machines in less time, while improving your ability to meet your customers’ expectations.

Executive Summary

Engineering’s Business Impact

Superior engineering is the secret weapon to win market share for many industrial equipment manufacturers. Companies that empower their engineers to exceed customer expectations for quality and price, while maintaining lead-time commitments, will find themselves at a competitive advantage.

Unfortunately, machine designs have grown so complex that engineers waste significant time on non-value-added work.

Consequently, they often lack the bandwidth to meet all of these expectations. In fact, 98% of machine designers report that their challenges negatively impact the business.

This research identifies six strategies to help reduce non-value-added work during machine design. The study examines topics ranging from mechanism design to design reviews.
