Abstract

DFX is a methodology for the definition and implementation of range of insights and demands which allow the development of an optimal and mature product in the aspects of reliability, manufacturing, assembly, service, transportation, usability, ergonomics, environment and more. It has been rightly argued that introduction of the DFX principles at the early stages would enable the designer to take into account the different ‘X contexts’ that would impact in his/her design. In this context Design for Method Study—Work Measurement is a suitable DFX method for design choice in high volume low value products. Use of PMTS to determine the assembling time and use of the time for design choice is proposed in this paper. The method is illustrated with two designs of the three pin plug.
