Design for the Environment (DFE) Process and Training at Ford Motor Company 982204

The approach taken by the Ford “Design For Environment Process and Training Development” team to develop and launch a DFE program was to first, identify the target audience as primarily design, product and manufacturing process engineers, and then, to provide them with an introduction to design for the environment concepts and offer a methodology for continuous improvement that is common to the Ford design process and Ford engineering tools.
This discussion will provide information on development of the DFE training, overview the recommended DFE methodology and offer a case study example of implementing DFE in products and manufacturing operations.
