Abstract: This paper presents an approach developed for supporting management at the earliest stage of manufacturing; in other words this approach which is called quality, cost, lead time-based process planning (QCLPP) is a toolkit for process planner to estimate manufacturing cost as well as manufacturing cycle time and product quality; using both QFD and FMEA tools to enhance life-cycle quality of ownership, this approach is also based on DFP to estimate the manufacturing cycle-time of a new product that will be made in a manufacturing system. To estimate manufacturing cost and the cost of risks related to a process plan, ABC and CbFMEA are deployed in this approach. A software program has been developed; it aims at supporting process planner to achieve goals fixed by the company based on this approach. A case study is presented in order to illustrate the approach and prototype system in this paper.
