Reduce Product Manufacture Costs

The Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) 2006 package guides users in simplifying a product's design, then quickly estimates assembly labor and part-manufacturing costs.

The software isolates the major cost drivers for a wide range of manufacturing and finishing choices. New tools display the cost of automatic versus manual product assembly. The software also estimates the cost to manufacture printed-circuit boards.
