This book offers a comprehensive overview of the role of product design in the manufacturing process. Ulrich and Pearson argue that, while product design is important, it is only one of many factors that contribute to manufacturing costs. They provide a framework for identifying and analyzing these other factors, ultimately concluding that a more nuanced perspective is necessary to fully understand manufacturing costs.
