Abstract

Supply chains play a very important role in the performance of a product across the product's life cycle. Therefore, considering supply chain impacts of the product design as early as possible, especially within the product design phase can potentially help with reducing costs, shortening lead times, and improving product technical performance across the product life cycle. An ongoing research project is aimed towards developing Design for Supply Chain. This paper discusses the relevant literature and presents two design approaches - sequential and simultaneous. Several preliminary mathematical models are presented and their performance on several test problems is compared.
