Design Profit® by Munro & Associates, Inc.

Map, Calculate, and Understand Your Design Goals

Design Profit is a mapping tool used to deliver metrics that objectively evaluate product designs and develop directional business cases for competing design concepts. The Design Profit map illustrates relationships between parts and processes and enhances the understanding of design and manufacturing content. Design Profit exposes waste and inefficiency in a product’s design, quantifies total accounted cost of a design, and indicates root cause of high cost offenders. It facilitates part count reduction and design simplification and elegance. The result is lower cost, better quality, higher profit and the benefits are delivered up front, before manufacturing begins.

Why Design Profit?

Waste Generation and Model Changes

Design Profit makes it easy to see where waste is generated and a model changes.

Balance Trades

Design Profit provides data to make the right balance trades.

Standardized and Repeatable Approach

Design Profit delivers a standardized and repeatable approach to best practices.

Key Features

Issue Identification

The software gives the team the ability to peel away the onion of manufacturing and design complexity, so that issues of several types are identified before the design moves from engineering to the more expensive stages of prototype and finally manufacturing.

Map Your Prospective Design

Design Profit enables your team to creatively, analytically and visually map your prospective design so that it incorporates all aspects of variables and metrics sought by the combined team into one, easy to understand, environment.

Capture Real World Data

Unlike PLM and CAD modeling programs, Design Profit captures any and all real world data, which can be manipulated and augmented to create comprehensive maps, calculations, and reports that go beyond the regular engineering boundaries so that quality, manufacturability, weight and cost reduction, labor, and sustainability metrics can be understood concurrently within your teams.
