Establish Target Specifications

Engineering Specifications

Step 1. Prepare the List of Specifications

The table below presents the engineering specifications, that will be used by the team to design against.

List of Specifications
Specification No. Specification Importance Units
1 Recordable Injuries 1 Injuries per Year

Step 2. Set Ideal and Marginally Acceptable Target Values

List of Engineering Specifications
Specification No. Importance Source Specification Units Marginal value Ideal Value Comments
ES 1 1 CN 1 Recordable Injuries Injuries per Year 0 0 Should be
ES 2 1 CN 1 Near Miss Injuries Near Miss Injuries per Year 0 0 Should be
ES 3 1 CN 2 Increased Floor Space For New Opportunity Square Footage 10 % 30 %
ES 4 1 CN 3 Finished Product Out The Door Parts per Year 5 % 15 %
ES 5 2 CN 4 Standard Weld Stations Specs Same Yes Yes Yes/No
ES 6 2 CN 5 Total Material Travel Distance Feet -15 % -40 %
ES 7 3 CN 6 Consignment Part Availability Percent Available 90 % 100 %
ES 8 3 CN 6 Trigger Response To Recognize What Seeing Response Time < 5 seconds < 1 second
ES 9 3 CN 7 Inventory Turnover Time 30 Days 16 Days Minimize
