I got it... my corporate senses are tingling. Let's cut labor costs by 12 percent!

I bet someone thought that at some company.

Good point, Greg. It's amazing the changes we're seeing in both product design and manufacturing. With both changing, design for manufacturing is evolving in both areas.

Some very good key points in this article.  One point that is especially important is doing the manufacturability early at the concept phase rather than 'throwing it over the wall' and letting the manufacturing engineers figure it out.  This simple adjustment can save tremendous amounts of time and money (both project and product cost) by having full engagement of the manufacturing engineers at the very beginning of the project.
