Design for Manufacturing & Assembly
Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DFMA) is a systematic method of analyzing a design to achieve the lowest total cost. Accellent is a DFMA leader. Our engineering services group utilizes BDI DFMA software to analyze designs and leverage core manufacturing technologies to produce superior reductions—at times up to 80% in costs and 50% in cycle time.
Generally, a substantial portion of the product cost is locked in by the design of the product. DFMA focuses on individual component design optimization for cost reduction and process robustness. It is typical to achieve product cost reductions of greater than 50% and reduce product development cycle times by 40%.
