Design for Manufacturability (DfM) Seminar
DfM can reduce many reliability costs, since products can be quickly assembled from fewer parts. Thus, products are easier to build and assemble, in less time, with better quality. Parts are designed for ease of fabrication and commonality with other designs. DFM encourages standardization of parts, maximum use of purchased parts, modular design, and standard design features. In this course, designers will learn how to save time and money by not having to “re-invent the wheel.” The result is a broader product line that is responsive to customer needs.
Imagine if a company could discover that 60 percent manufacturing costs are unnecessary. If it could act on it, would there be any need to outsource the jobs? Imagine further that lean manufacturing does not have to be mean. This course is about becoming very lean without being mean.
The participants will learn:
- How to recognize critical product features for ultrahigh quality
- How to translate critical design features into manufacturing requirements
- How to recognize wasteful practices
- How to replace wasteful practices into high impact best practices
- How to reduce wrong lean practices and do more of right practices
