Establish Target Specifications

Table of Contents

Step 1. Prepare the List of Metrics

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

List of Metrics
Metric No. Metric Importance Units
1 Recordable Injuries 1 Injuries/Month
2 Near Miss Incidents 1 Near Misses/Month
3 VECTRA Production Time 1 Weeks/Unit
4 Economic Payback 2 Years
5 Unit Setup Time Delay 2 Days
6 Non-Ergonomic Movements 2 Movements/Day
7 Usable Work Surface 2 Square Feet
Customer Needs as Related to Engineering Metrics Matrix
Needs and Metrics Recordable Injuries Near Miss Incidents VECTRA Production Time Economic Payback Unit Setup Time Delay Non-Ergonomic Movements Usable Work Surface
1 Minimize Production Downtime x x x
2 Meet/Exceed Building Codes x x x
3 Assembly Worker Ergonomics/Safety x x x
4 Organized Tool Storage x x x x x
5 Sufficient Floor Space x x x
6 Most Cost Effective x
7 Material/Work Flow x x
8 Reduce Production Time x x x x
9 Access to Nitrogen/Air x x x x
10 In-Process Cart Design x x x
11 Rework Bundle Cradle x x x

Step 2. Set Ideal and Marginally Acceptable Target Values

List of Metrics
Metric No. Need Nos. Metric Importance Units Marginal value Ideal Value Expected Design Values
1 Needs 2,3,5,9 Recordable Injuries 1 Injuries/Month 0 0 0
2 Need 2,3,5,9 Near Miss Incidents 1 Near Misses/Month 0 0 0
3 Need 1,4,5,7-11 VECTRA Production Time 1 Weeks/Unit <=4 3 4
4 Need 1,4,6,8,10,11 Economic Payback 2 Years <=6 <=3 1
5 Need 4,5,7,8 Unit Setup Time Delay 2 Days <=5 2 3
6 Need 2,3,4,9 Non-Ergonomic Movements 2 Movements/Day TBD 0 Out of Scope
7 Need 4,8 Usable Work Surface 2 Square Feet >=80 >=100 95

Step 3. Reflect on the Results and the Process

Economic Payback and Usable Work Surface have been added as specs to compliment customer feedback.

MSD II. Reflection of Results

In Engineering Spec table above (Step 2.), a new column is added for Expected Design Values that the team expects to achieve from our work.
