"Optimizing New Product Design & Development Using Reference Architecture"
Across the board, organizations are attempting to optimize their product development efforts by minimizing non-value added activities. The use of a reference architecture framework to enhance new product design and development is becoming increasingly common.
Reuse and reference architecture can significantly reduce development costs by utilizing existing assets (artifacts and components) and expertise. However, any attempt to deploy an enterprise reference architecture initiative must be supported by redesigned processes, systems and mental models.
This benchmarking study uncovers best practices to better understand the conception, implementation and outcomes of a reuse and reference architecture framework. The study outputs provide engineering and quality managers and directors with data to assess their reuse and reference architecture initiatives and programs.
SAMPLE KEY FINDINGS
This research was conducted on behalf of one of Best Practices, LLC's Global Benchmarking Council (GBC) clients and was based on survey results from 11 respondents at different manufacturing companies.
