Manufacturing productivity through design efficiency

As product designs get more complex, it needs a lot of tweaking to get the product right and reliable manufacturing processes to produce. It is preferred to have the manufacturing location close to the design centers to have a tight control. But then, the cost of production needs to be competitive at that location. So the focus then shifts to increasing productivity of manufacturing employees & processes.

Sheet Metal Fabrication: It starts from Design

As recession fades away, companies are too cautious about how to move forward and a great deal of effort is spent in strategizing the future course. To cope up with the global competition, developing expertise on lowering product cost and quality manufacturing is going to be essential. Designs need to contain only essential functional features and care needs to be taken to make the designs manufacturable using cheaper manufacturing processes, and with less scrap and rejections. This will not only make the designs cost effective but also greener, along with getting them to market faster.

Delivering designs fast that cost the minimum while meeting targets for function, quality, and durability is what sets apart the expert engineer. The discipline of design for manufacturing (DFM) intends to aid engineers in doing just that.

Benefits of Using the Right Measurement Tool
