Which of the following is primarily used to help design products that will connect product attributes with customer desires?
What dimension of competitiveness does time-to-market performance in product design and process selection affect?
In a concurrent engineering approach to product design and development, an integration team ensures that various parts of the product are compatible with the needs of the target customer.
A key decision point in the generic development process during “Phase 1: Concept Development” is project approval.
The “house of quality” matrix is a technique that relates customer requirements to concrete operating or engineering goals.
Similarity of projects allows for a streamlined and highly structured development process in which variant of the generic product development process?
The ecodesign approach focuses exclusively on the design and commercial launch phases of the product’s life cycle.
Quality function deployment (QFD):
Economic analysis of product development projects is useful in which of the following circumstances?
Value analysis/value engineering has as its objective to increase product quality and reduce costs.
Designing a new product for aesthetics and for the user is generally termed industrial design.
Target customers are specified during “Phase 0: Planning” of the generic product development process.
DFMA stands for design for manufacturing and assembly.
Because ecodesigned products are innovative and have better environmental performance, they can be of a slightly lesser quality than the market standard.
Which of the following is not an example of technology –push product?

A key decision point in the generic development process during “Phase 4: Testing and Refinement” is concept approval.
Quality function deployment involves listening to customers to determine the characteristics of a superior product.
Early prototypes of a new product, using the same geometry and material processes as the production versions, are usually constructed during the concept development phase of the product development process.
