Although U.S. and European engineers are leading the Japanese in basic research, they are not as successful at improving product reliability as their Japanese counterparts. This book was created to end this disadvantage. It demonstrates how to reduce defects and design flaws by fine-tuning the product during the research stage. Readers will also find the key strategies for maximizing product function and effectiveness during the R&D stages--and throughout the product's life.
