How to ‘design-out’ production problems

I have quite a few years experience and knowledge of the coatings business, and I'm still learning, but there are certain production related issues that cause problems time and time again, problems that could so easily have been resolved at the design stage. In this blog, I intend to highlight these and, by doing so, hope to get the design guys fully on-side with their production colleagues.
