INTRODUCTION FOR DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE & ASSEMBLY (DFMA)

Design for manufacturability (also known as design for manufacturing & assembly (DFM/DFA) is the application of process, methodology and art of creating cost effective product designs. The design stage is important and ultimately influential in the end-product cost, quality, and time to market.  Overall product lifecycle characteristics are committed at design stage. The product design is not just based on good design or engineering factors but it should consider the through-put or ease of manufacturing as well.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  1. Understand and perform Boothroyd/Dewhurst assembly efficiency analysis
  2. Designing for mistake proofing (poka yoke)
  3. Minimize part count
  4. Modular design
  5. Top down assembly
  6. Reduction of fasteners
  7. Specify standard parts
  8. Facilitate parts handling
  9. Minimize reorientation at assembly
  10. Minimize cables
  11. Minimize final adjustments after assembly

 

METHODOLOGY:

  1. This course is conducted online.
  2. Interactive and action based with personal examples.
  3. Pre, post test assessment and quizzes will be conducted.

 

INTENDED AUDIENCE:

  1. Mechanical design engineers
  2. Engineers & technicians who assess a design before manufacturing
