In practice in various micro systems organizations designers create an optimal design without incorporating the capabilities of the fabrication processes. When system engineers, design engineers and process engineers work together to design both the product and production processes, it is known as the integrated Product Creation Process (iPCP).The designer's consideration of design for manufacturability, cost, reliability and maintainability is the starting point for this integrated product development. Traditionally designers develop an initial concept and translate that into a product design, making minor modifications as required to meet the specification. PhoeniX Software tools support designers in starting creative processes by considering various design concept alternatives in the early stage by combining ideas with fabrication process capabilities. This approach delivers better yielding designs and reduces the number of design iterations resulting in shorter development times.
