Designing for Efficient Production and Low Cost

Design for Manufacturing is the process of designing or engineering a product so that it is easy to manufacture at the lowest possible price. The process includes a review of the raw material selection, secondary processes (finishing, plating), dimensional requirements and even final packaging.

Benefits:

  1. Reduces material, overhead and labour cost
  2. Shortens the product development cycle
  3. Focuses on standards to reduce cost

Key Principles in the DFM Process:

  • Minimize part count
  • Standardize parts and materials
  • Create modular assemblies
  • Design for efficient joining
  • Minimize re-orientation of parts during assembly and/or machining
  • Simplify and reduce the number of manufacturing operations
  • Specify ‘acceptable’ surface finishes for functionality
