Design for Manufacture and Assembly is applicable in any part, product or system that needs to be produced efficiently at high volumes. Fundamentally, DFMA is rooted in optimization for volume production where component minimization and ease of part fabrication characterize the two primary facets of optimal designs. A strong foundational effort, tailored to incorporate these core tenets of DFMA, will help to streamline costs and implementation timeframe throughout a product’s development cycle. Through a real-world case study, this presentation will outline tangible examples of how a commercial design can be optimized for DFMA.
