WorkbookDesign Review Essentials Workbook, by Charles Gillis

Description

The course describes how Design Reviews can be used along with other new product development methods to improve product designs and uncover potential problems early enough to fix them. A range of effective techniques for organizing and conducting Design Reviews will be presented. Participants will receive specific guidance and tools to assist them in customizing Design Reviews to reflect their own organization’s requirements.

In this workshop attendees not only learn the essential elements of a robust Design Review process but also have the opportunity to apply these principles in a real Design Review. Attendees will play each of the roles in a typical Design Review; leader, facilitator, recorder, and participant. Lessons learnt will be captured after the application practice exercises to discuss positive outcomes and identify opportunities for improvement.
