Bradford L. Goldense, President of Goldense Group Inc., discusses Performance Measurement and Concurrent Product Development. The episode addresses sweeping changes taking place around the globe relating to the approach and process of performing product development and engineering activities. Since the 1920s, the era of Taylorism and the assembly line, sequential or rapid sequential processes have prevailed in RD&E and product development. The underlying assumptions, upon which the credibility of this sequential methodology are based, seldom hold true in the fast-paced world of today. A more concurrent, parallel, and/or collaborative environment is needed to maximize the innovative and financial potential of companies. Numerous industrial and high-tech companies are still using decades-old sequential methods causing them to undershoot their true market potential.
The segment focuses on how GGI achieves positive change in product development practices and results by addressing the different communication and learning styles resident in technical communities and the groups that work with them and support them to create a concurrent collaborative product development environment.
Selected best practices, such as Voice-Of-The-Customer [VOC] and Design for Manufacturability and Assembly [DFMA], are discussed during the episode.
According to GGI: "Most clients get an increase of 20% revenue and profit from new products within one product development cycle, some have gotten 400% and 500% and increased stock prices."
John Caezza, President of the Broadband Communications Products Division of C-COR.net, appears on the show with Brad Goldense.
