Improving Manufacturability and Competitiveness of Industrial Products with DFM
Design for Manufacture (DFM) is a set of cross-functional development tools and a mindset that helps development teams optimise their conceptual designs and improve the manufacturability of products and programs – often by cutting costs associated with production and complexity of other internal processes significantly. Resources that instead can be used for improving product quality, competitiveness etc..
Design for Manufacture as a discipline has resurged in the last decade as still more companies are revising their competitive position by addressing the wider concept of manufacturability – both systematically and timely in the development process, rather than chasing cost reduction alone.
IPU help companies and development teams adopting the DFM mindset in specific projects and at strategic and organisational level. This includes involving management and various company functions actively, especially in the conceptual design phases.
