With design influencing more than 70% of a product's final cost, increased use of design principles in manufacturing will help manufacturers:

  • lower costs
  • bring products to market faster
  • be more competitive
  • grow and employ more Queenslanders.

That's why we've developed the Design in Manufacturing seminar series, an initiative of our advanced manufacturing action plan.

The seminar series aims to:

  • raise businesses' awareness of the importance of design in manufacturing
  • highlight the opportunities for advanced manufacturers arising from the use of design and engineering analysis software, new materials and advanced manufacturing techniques in a digitised economy
  • identify sources of advice and information that will strengthen businesses' design capability
  • showcase the benefits of incorporating design principles and practices in manufacturing production and processes.
