Design for Manufacturing Webinar

Thursday, Sep 17, 2020

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is an important aspect in the product design process. It addresses the ability to deliver a product with the required specifications at the right price point. However, the refinement in the design required for an optimal manufacturing process is sometimes overlooked. There is a belief that if the prototype is constructed, then manufacturing is straightforward. And this belief usually causes delays or additional costs.

Each product is unique and has special design requirements, so there are no universal DFM rules. But awareness of the manufacturing process allows for some general approaches. This talk will provide an overview of manufacturing metrics and related DFM considerations and methodologies with some examples.
