To introduce products which meet the customer expectation not only the functionality must be secured but also the cost, quality, availability, manufacturability and compliance. To achieve all
these requirements when introducing this product to the market it’s better not to be surprised that one or more requirements are not met. Avoiding surprises starts with including cost, quality,
availability, manufacturability and compliance in the specification. Insight in the expected results is achieved by predicting the outcome of the finished product and mitigates the gaps during the
design phase. Newly developed is a method to predict the part quality.
