Design in Manufacturing Program

Design influences more than 70% of a product's final cost. Increased use of circular-design principles across the manufacturing process will help manufacturers:

  • lower costs
  • reduce waste and be more sustainable
  • be more competitive
  • grow and employ more Queenslanders.

The Design in Manufacturing Program program aims to:

  • raise businesses' awareness of the importance of circular-design in manufacturing
  • provide businesses with the capabilities to incorporate circular-design principles into their product and process design or redesign
  • support businesses to design more sustainably.
