Design for Manufacturability (DFM) is the engineering process of proactively designing a product in a way that simplifies production.
This method of engineering creates designs with fewer individual components by standardizing parts, maximizing the use of purchased components and creating modular designs with standard features. As a result, products are easier to fabricate and assemble in less time.
Companies that apply DFM can realize substantial benefits such as shortened development times, reductions in production costs as well as significant improvements in product quality, reliability and serviceability.
The Engineering Department at AAFI is available to work with your engineers and collaborate with your product development team to get the most out of your product design.
We can often make suggestions that will enhance your product and provide recommendations for the most efficient processes for manufacturing.
