About the Course

This course addresses product design. Product design defines the product. Process design determines how it will be produced and which resources will be used to produce it. Much of the data created in the design process is required to support operations planning and control.

Course Description

In this course, we will highlight the elements of product and process design and the basic data used to support the planning and control of operations.

We will begin by discussing manufacturing feasibility, which is the stage in which much of the data required to plan and control items is created. Then we will cover product definition data. This is the stage in the design process where product-related data is documented. Next, we will explore process definition data. Process definition data relates to how components are transformed into the parent item. This data is required in all production environments, but the form and content varies widely from one industry segment to the next and from one company to the next. Finally, we will address resources definition data. This includes the information required in the scheduling and capacity planning processes.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Explain how product and process design affect the ease of manufacture, product quality, and cost of operations.
  • Recognize design actions that can improve the ease of manufacture and quality and reduce the cost of operations at the same time.
  • Describe the need for accurate and timely data to support the operations planning and control processes.
  • Identify the basic data required to support operations planning and control and the organization functions responsible for each category of data.


The following topics are included in this course:

  • Manufacturing Feasibility
  • Product Definition Data
  • Process Definition Data
  • Resource Definition Data
