Abstract
Today's customer is concerned with cost reduction programs and many "grade" their suppliers by their contribution the these programs. Actually, the time to cost reduce is in the design phase, not after production has begun. To assure the most moldable and least cost part, the customer and supplier should begin discussions early in the design process when there is the opportunity to change things.
