Abstract: Manufacturing and design are very closely related. The manufacturing capabilities available impact the scope of design, while design for manufacturing ensures the economic success of the products. Furthermore, the major goals of firms in the nineties are to significantly reduce product costs and time to market (TTM). To meet these goals, quality product designs that meet customers' needs have to be developed. Design methods such as Quality Function Deployment and Pugh's concept selection technique have been used to significantly improve engineering design processes. Developed as separate tools, however, they are difficult to integrate and coordinate in the total design process, since the relationship of the two methods is often unclear. This paper demonstrates, through a case study, that these methods are in fact results of a similar underlying concept. Design problems and solutions are unified by the concept of engineering models. An engineering model is a set of equations that relates the design variables to the performance metrics used to quantify performance of a product. Together with the engineering models, Quality Function Deployment and Pugh's concept selection technique have been used in the design and development of a hematology machine from concept to prototype.
