COST ENGINEERING WITH QFD: A MATHEMATICAL MODEL

Authors: K.G. Durga Prasad, K.Venkata Subbaiah, K. Narayana Rao

Abstract: Cost engineering helps the firms in decision-making with respect to product development. It is primarily concerned with cost estimation and cost control. Decisions made during the design phase have a significant influence on development and life cycle costs. The effective cost management during the design phase of a product is essential to develop a product with minimum cost and desired quality of the customer. In this paper a mathematical model is established by incorporating cost engineering techniques such as Target Costing (TC) and Value Engineering (VE) with Quality Function Deployment (QFD) to develop a product. An illustrative example is also presented.

Keywords: Cost engineering, Quality Function Deployment, Value Engineering, Target costing
