Backward design and cross-functional design management

  title={Backward design and cross-functional design management},
  author={D. Daniel Sheu and D. R. Chen},
  journal={Computers & Industrial Engineering},
This study establishes a framework for backward design analyses and cross-functional performance management system to achieve product design for excellence. The authors define backward design as opposed to regular forward design. A cross-functional viewpoint emphasizing downstream knowledge and lessons learned is introduced for proactive product design management. The study proposes several approaches for backward design endeavors, including Extended Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (EFMEA… CONTINUE READING
