charts_businessOrganizations love to make design changes to their products on a regular basis.  Any firm producing a product, be it the Tesla Model S or McDonald’s French fries, strives to introduce incremental improvements to add new features, reduce costs, comply with the latest regulations, and remain competitive.  Sometimes these changes have an impact on suppliers.
