Design: A good product model is
critical to the success of your project. Poor designs, and the inevitable rework is the number one cause of performance issues and project failure. Getting it done right depends on bringing in the
experts, not Big 4 hacks. If your products cannot be configured quickly and easily, if they donít price correctly, or if the orders pass to production in unbuildable configurations, then what is the
point? It canít be just sales or engineering or production control in a vacuum. All your Ďducksí need to be in a row, flying straight.
