My facility is not responsible for changing product specs. Is that the key?

I think this is a very gray area for some companies that are very process rather than product focused.

Some products are valued for their intrinsic properties rather than dimensional characteristics. This is true to the point that these intrinsic values ARE responsible for the performance of the product.

A muffler is valued mostly for its form and fit. Does it seal againts other parts, is it within dimensional tolerances, etc.

A silicon wafer, sputtering target, and many other semiconductor products are valued for their intrinsic properties. The grain size, orientation, texture of a target has to meet customer defined specs. However, the processing required to produce these results is not defined by the customer.

What do you think?

My previous message was intended as a reply to Definition of "Development"

The question brought up surrounds the difficulty in defining Design Responsibility.
