This paper presents a design-based sofhYare cycle time reduction model that can be easily implemented without replacement of existing development paradigms or design methodologies, The research results suggest that there are many cycle-time factors that are influenced by design decisions. If manipulated carefully it appears that an organization can reduce cycle-time and improve quality simultaneously. The preliminary results look promising and it is expected that further experimentation will support the use of this model. This paper will analyze the basis for the model proposed here, describe the model’s details, and summarize the preliminary results of the model.
