By J. Jerry Kaufman;Yoshihiko Sato

This publication provides, for the 1st time, a brand new know-how for bettering items and innovating new and higher items, first constructed in Japan via Yoshihiko Sato. worth research tear-down combines conventional tear-down with the applied sciences of worth research and cost engineering. inside of many years of its public assertion in Japan, price research tear-down was once followed by means of all 11 eastern motor vehicle brands, and lots of of the japanese customer electronics brands. the writer is a famous authority and writer on price engineering and price administration, and has contributed a lot that's in those applied sciences to the method defined during this publication. the results of his collaboration with Mr. Sato is a method that is helping engineers and bosses decrease product rate, enhance caliber, regularly enhance current items, and notice possibilities for leading edge swap.

Timing involves questioning whether the ideas should be incorporated immediately into our product, or held for some future date or event. Two conditions require immediate change and improvement. The first are those value-adding competitive changes that can be implemented with a minimum investment and minor impact on production. The second is the necessity of correcting a serious competitive defect quickly, which could impact production and require a significant investment. Because the product is in the field and can be evaluated by conducting a market survey among existing customers, market analysis and verification that justify the need for such immediate actions can be performed relatively quickly.

But for a nurse to “attend patient” means that the nurse is expected to care for the patient.

When hardware components are used, measurements are quantitative and often expressed as engineering units.

When the fuel is expended and the basic function cannot be performed, the cigarette lighter is thrown away. However, all of the components of the cigarette lighter are still operable. Why then is the lighter thrown away? The answer is in basic function rule 4: the loss of the basic function(s) causes the loss of the market value and worth of the product or service. COMPONENT - FUNCTION SELECTION When performing a function analysis on a common lead pencil, the pencil’s basic (B) and secondary (S) functions are determined by evaluating the components’ contributions to the overall product (see Figure 2-5).
