How to Design for Manufacturing

Feb. 17, 2005
Design for Manufacture and Assembly, DFMA 2005A, helps developers expand cost-management practices during design.

With the addition of deep drawing, DFMA software now includes a complete range of processes commonly used to estimate sheet-metal part costs.

It combines DFA Version 9.2 and DFM Concurrent Costing V2.1. The software identifies major cost drivers associated with manufacturing and finishing parts. It helps engineering supply chains understand the cost structure of products and supports the development of innovative designs that are easier and more economical to produce. The software takes a quantitative, multidisciplinary approach to cost assessment. A key benefit is the quick generation of cost estimate at any stage of design. The software has estimating features for deep drawing and assembly fabrication. Deep drawing is a major addition to the range of sheet-metalworking processes in DFMA software.
