When developing a new product, it's important to follow the basics of design for manufacturing (DFM). DFM involves optimizing all the component parts of a product to enhance the ease of manufacturing. You can do this by refining the product design to simplify the assembly process – which has the very important side benefit of creating higher-quality products at lower cost.
Understanding Design for Manufacturability
DFM is all about thinking about manufacturability during the design process. This should happen at all stages of design, starting..
When you’re bringing new products to market, it’s essential to consider the entire production lifecycle before moving towards manufacturing. Keeping the manufacturing and assembly in mind when designing the product can save time and money during the production process. As the final price of the product can determine its viability, finding the optimal design for manufacturing (DFM) will aid in balancing the productive-efficiency curve.
DFMA – Design for Manufacturing and Assembly
Finding lean manufacturing and assembly processes isn’t exactly simple. Once the functional design of..
