(Although the typical life cycle assumption is that 80-95% of a product's costs are locked in by design (See Chapter 2 of the CAM-I Conceptual Design), this study indicates that companies can substantially reduce costs throughout the product life cycle. The paper includes a discussion of five cost-management techniques: target costing, product-specific kaizen costing, general kaizen costing, functional group management, and product costing).
