Workshop #1
Design for Manufacture & Assembly
 

This workshop will show you how to analyze and reduce the cost of your designs. At least 85 percent of manufacturing costs are determined in the early stages of design. When engineers make informed design decisions during the concept stage, they can avoid costly corrections later. In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn how to lower manufacturing costs through good design.
  • Discover what features make a product easy and cost efficient to assemble.
  • Find out how to design to facilitate automation.
  • You don’t need to outsource your product to lower manufacturing costs—you simply need a better design! This workshop will show you how.
