What are the Design Factors in APQP?

In introduction of Chaper 2 of APQP, it says: All design factors should be considered by the organization in APQP even if the design is owned by the custormer or shared.

What is it? and how to "consider" the design factors? Is it conflicted with requirements of ISO/TS 16949 the exclusion of product design and development if the organization has no responsible for the product design ?

Thanks!

Jelly,

Being as you are not responsible for product design you may think you have no input to product design.

But product designers are concerned about the ease of manufacture of the item (perhaps in a design for six sigma sense). Perhaps the designer is asking your organization to input its expertise on how the product design could be improved.

So, at what point do you plan to review the product's design information and provide that input?

I found text in APQP which could explain the question:
Appendix B Design for manufacturability and assembly: Esign for Manufacturability and Assembly is a simultaneous engineering process designed to optimize the relationship between design function, manufacturability, and ease of assembly. The enhancement of designs for assembly and manufacturing is an important step. Plant representatives should be consulted early in the design process to review components or systems and provide input on specific assembly and manufacturing requirements.
Here Plant could be considered as supplier, I think.
