Design To Cost Academy

After many years of direct experience in applying the approach of Lean Design and Design to Cost programs in Czech and German industrial firms, we have decided to implement an open training programme – Design To Cost.

The company ICG-Capability launches a new program "Design To Cost Academy", which will introduce and mainly teach you ways to reduce production costs by up to 30%.

The “Design To Cost Academy” combines training methodology, presentations of practical examples of the invited guests (TOP managers) and visits from companies in the Czech Republic which are already successfully applying this approach. The program is designed as a series of interconnected workshops in combination with selected guests, whose professions are close to the topic, and complemented by visits to domestic companies.

Design to Cost -This unique methodology is effective for all manufacturing companies which have their own development, or at least may affect development. Using this methodology, we are able to reduce direct costs by 10-30%, while maintaining the quality and functionality.

Participants who are interested in the methodology can register also for individual modules, but since the topics are interconnected, we recommend completing all modules. We are able to prepare a “turnkey” training for individual companies.
