Course overview

Design for Manufacturing (DfM) is a method to achieve successful designs by optimally aligning product design with production methods.

In practice, the required production process development is often strongly underestimated in the design phase, resulting in delays and financial setbacks. In most cases, more attention to production methods in the design phase leads to immediate cost and time savings.

This training helps to ensure a smooth start of production, resulting in a short time to market, favorable cost and ultimately a successful business.

That is why the DfM approach is also known as Design for Success. DfM starts in the concept phase: manufacturing processes are consciously chosen and the design is tailored to those manufacturing processes and vice versa. Success factors are functionality, total lead time and integral cost price (costs up to and including a few years of production).

vObjective

During the training you learn to use the DfM approach. This means that manufacturability is incorporated into a design through careful assessment and ranking of alternatives via design choice criteria. In addition, a motivated scrapping of alternatives ensures a better focus, also within the development team.

The DfM approach of this training focuses on supporting the design decisions, whereby knowledge of manufacturing processes is important. Collecting and deploying knowledge of manufacturing processes is therefore an important part of the course.

vIntended for

Designers, architects and their managers who make design decisions.

Participants have at least a bachelor degree and some experience in product design, whereby experience in mechanical design is an advantage.

vProgram

The following topics are treated:

  • Definition of the DfM method
  • Preparation of product specification
  • DfM in Product Generation Process (PGP) with project phasing in this
  • Knowledge of manufacturing processes for  designers
  • Interactions between: material, product and manufacturing processes
  • Estimate lead time to production at pace
  • Integra lcost calculation
  • An approach in DfM
  • Cases and applying the method in your own work


The training consists of three days and then after two weeks a so-called assurance session. In this session, students present a design from their own practice in the presence of their own team leader and senior management. This meeting must show that participants have understood the methodology and can work with it in practice.
