Rapid Product Innovation: Improving Processes for Production System Design Implementation and Design, Implementation, Operations
ARC's Greg Gorbach Rapid Product Innovation Presentation @ ARC Industry Forum 2010 in Orlando, FL.
For certain manufacturing segments (especially discrete and portions of hybrid), introducing new products or improving the manufacturing process usually requires creating or modifying production systems. Many production system problems are not discovered until late in the design/implementation process, which introduces delays and cost. Once in operation, virtual reference models, if available, could aid in performance monitoring, process optimization, problem diagnosis, operator training, and continuous improvement
