Design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) is a methodology for identifying, quantifying and eliminating waste or inefficiency in a product design. The goal is to create a product that is easy and inexpensive to mass-produce. DFMA guidelines include minimizing the number of parts and fasteners; reducing post-assembly adjustment; and supporting production variation. Manufacturers that adopt the methodology can reduce costs, bring products to market faster, and reap significant savings in parts and materials inventories. This presentation will explain how.
