Abstract

Product quality improvement is one of the principal reasons to be more competitive in the global market. The essential methods widely employed to enhance product quality include discovering better designs and modelling. Moreover, creating alternative designs and stimulating innovation can be seen as important steps toward sustainable product and project development (Berawi, 2006; Berawi, 2015). To acquire better alternative designs, three basic common steps can be considered. The first step is to identify the needs of the project/product, particularly the functional requirements and design specifications. These parameters are combined and amended to determine the added value of the end results. The second step is to optimize the designs or project/product performances to obtain efficiency, safety, and sustainability, which can be done using simple- to advance-modelling and by simulating the design and process parameters throughout several iterations. The last step is to determine a rational method that should be well defined and formulated to improve the process and end result. The selection of appropriate methods will lead to the accuracy of choosing optimum design requirements, parameters, and measurement procedures. At the end result, the use of better designs and modelling will significantly contribute to the quality enhancement of designated products and projects. Furthermore, technological developments may contribute to accelerating product manufacturing in various fields of projects. To support this additional so-called catalyst, technology development processes and improvements can be generated by identifying key attributes, as well as by creating insightful and comprehensive approaches. In addition, interventions in terms of added value in technology development processes can play an important role in technology contributions and outcomes
