The goals of the Fuji Xerox development process reform are to increase efficiency by minimizing the unevenness in the skill levels of engineers and to eliminate the number of design change requests by front-loading before making actual models. We have been developing a machine design support tool that utilizes IT technology to help us realize goals.
This system standardizes the design procedure of a leading expert designer and it is the tool that supports a designer, enabling him or her to achieve a high-quality design. We have already seen a decline in the number of design change requests as a result of the use of this support tool.
