Abstract [en]

The design–manufacturing interface is very crucial in NPD projects. Decisions made during the product development impact the downstream processes, such as manufacturing. To ensure that the new product is fit for manufacturing, it is important to understand manufacturing requirements early in the NPD process. In this chapter, we investigated how assembly requirements were handled in the early stages of two NPD projects at two manufacturing companies. First, assembly requirements during the early stages of NPD were identified based on the empirical data. A comparison between the empirical findings and the requirements in the literature revealed that some assembly requirements were not expressed or discussed by the assembly representatives in the study. Most notably, logistics and material handling aspects were rarely discussed between the assembly representatives and the product development department during CD. Additionally, it was noted that the companies lacked a systematic way to identify and express their assembly requirements. This made it difficult for assembly representatives in NPD projects to set requirements for the new product and to follow them up. As a result, it was up to the assembly representative in the projects to decide and act according to their experience and expertise, which resulted in divergence in the results of various projects at the case companies.
