Implementing Frameworks to Drive Continuous Improvement: HP's Lessons in Applying the DCOR Model (EX)
Gareth Evans has helped HP pioneer the notion of using Business Process Management in product development. Here he shares with us HP's lessons in applying DCOR, a design chain operations reference model, to drive continuous improvement in product development. In one program, time-to-market product launch at the regional level was reduced by 25% during the first phase, and another 81% on a second phase.
This paper is derived from Mr. Evans' presentation at PLM Road Map" 2005, Collaborative Product Development Associates' annual conference.
