DTC Meaning: What Is Design To Cost?

Design to Cost or DTC is a critical initiative in the manufacturing industry that integrates cost management with decision-making in real-time.

Design to Cost or DTC integrates cost estimation and analysis at the design stage, shifting the focus of cost reduction away from arbitrary targets. In a Design to Cost environment, costs are directly tied to the design decisions driving them. This transforms cost from a post hoc business target to an independent variable within the design process.
