Product development teams face many difficult challenges. Typically, the cost of production is the factor that must be relegated to satisfy other goals. But what if every goal could be met, including a 50% reduction in the cost of production? Since 1983 Boothroyd Dewhurst Inc., the global leader in DFMA, has turned this dream into a reality.
