Abstract: Manufacturing companies are increasingly organised in global distributed networks. With this, the interface between development and manufacturing is gaining importance. We introduce a decoupling point in development activities (DDP) according to the logic of the customer order decoupling point (CODP) / order penetration point (OPP). Case study data shows that the introduction of a DDP enables to split development activities and postpone manufacturing related specificities downstream. With this, the definition of the dedicated manufacturing site for newly developed products is less time sensitive. Additionally, the later decision which site will produce the product leads to higher accuracy in the decision.
