The essence of CE is the integration of product design and process  planning into one common activity. Concurrent design helps improve the quality  of early design decisions and has a tremendous impact on life-cycle cost of the  product. It is important to decide at an early stage in design which type of  assembly method is likely to be adopted, based on the method yielding the lowest  costs. This section allows the designer to decide, from the values of basic product  and company parameters (production volume, number of parts, etc.) which  assembly method is likely to be the most economic.  The purchase of special-purpose automation equipment (high-speed  automatic assembly) would almost certainly provide excellent return on  investment. Somewhere between these extremes is a range of annual production  volumes for which robot assembly might be the best economic choice if the  assembly were appropriately designed. However, changing system is not only the  way to reduce the production time and cost. It is also possible to reduce time and  cost significantly by using software package and designing or redesigning  assembly of product appropriately.  Paper below represents design optimization possibilities by DFA approach  for Easygard post engineering design produced by one of the UK medium size  manufacturing company.
