This seminar provides both a functional understanding of the principles involved in conducting a Design for Manufacture/Design for Assembly (DFM/DFA) study and the process for implementing a DFM/DFA culture into the organization. DFM/DFA principles can apply to both manual and automated processes resulting in significant cost savings through not only simpler designs with fewer components but also analyses workstation setup and workflow, part orientations during build, and design considerations such as component placement, tolerancing and servicing considerations. Related topics include: ergonomic considerations, error-proofing vs. mistake-proofing, and tooling considerations.
Actual examples from the mobility industry are used to support the lecture and participants conduct a full DFM/DFA study which includes completing the DFM/DFA worksheet, calculation of Design Efficiency for Manufacturing, and understanding the challenges of implementing a DFM/DFA culture.
