Design for Manufacturing describes the process of designing or engineering a product in order to facilitate the manufacturing process in order to reduce its manufacturing costs. DFM will allow potential problems to be fixed in the design phase which is the least expensive place to address them. Other factors may affect manufacturability such as the type of raw material, the form of the raw material, dimensional tolerances, and secondary processing such as finishing.
Design for cost aims to design products with the lowest costs. The method leads to new relationships between suppliers and customers involved in development.
PDC’s approach uses a blend of these two principles. By offering our collaborative input and considering both options we have seen great benefits to the projects that we’ve endeavored to support.
