Design schedules are shortening, and firms are experiencing increased pressure to meet tight delivery deadlines. Product complexity is increasing as customers demand differentiated, feature-rich products. Often, design errors and problems are found late in the design process or even after release, necessitating costly engineering change orders (ECOs).
