Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA)



DFMA is a technique that integrates Design and Manufacturing aspect of the product at the drawing board stage itself. It uses simple numerical evaluation methods to examine the ease of manufacturing and assembling the product. DFMA is applied in many automobile and ancillary companies during the product development stage to minimize the component. It is a systematic methodology that reduces the manufacturing cost through reduction in the overall parts of the product and it involves redesigning the product parts, so the product will be easy to handle and assemble. It maximizes the use of manufacturing processes in the design of components and minimizes the use of components in the design of a product.More importantly DFMA integrates Lean concepts for product design, which eliminates or reduces unnecessary components and manufacturing expenses through simple numerical evaluation methods. This program is intended to develop DFMA skills for Designers & Engineers to improve cost effectiveness of existing and new products. In short, the implementation of DFMA leads to enormous benefits like:

  • Reduces time-to-market
  • Reduces component count
  • Reduces process time
  • Suits LEAN manufacturing system
  • Reduces product & process cost

    • New Product Introduction (NPI)
    • Introduction to DFMA
    • DFM-Part 1:
      • Functional Analysis
      • Design Efficiency
    • DFA:
      • Feeding Analysis
      • Fitting Analysis
    • DFM-Part 2:
      • Design guidelines for ease of manufacture
      • Assembly guidelines/li>

      • Time-to-market awareness will be created among the Designers & Engineers.
      • The participant will be able to design the product with least number of parts.
      • Participants will be provided an insight of the manufacturing problems.
      • The participant will be able to design a product with optimum material and manufacturing operations.
      • Designers will develop knowledge on cost consciousness &awareness of Designers’ accountability for product design lifecycle will be created.
