Those of us who design things like to believe that the goal of design engineering is to produce the best product for a given cost. Others, less enlightened, might imply that our goal is to design an acceptable product at the lowest cost. However we approach it, few would disagree that cost/performance trade-offs play a crucial role in design engineering. We will explore how production quantity affects these trade-offs and thus the way we go about designing, specifying, purchasing and/or manufacturing optics.
