Design for Manufacturing Examples: Real-Life Engineering Case Studies

May 18, 2022
A substantial majority of a part’s cost (70% or more) is effectively locked in once a design is finalized. How can a design engineer truly predict the most important cost drivers of a particular part’s design while it’s still on the drawing board?

The better tools an engineer has to estimate manufacturability of design alternatives, the more effectively they make cost-effective engineering decisions. Spreadsheets and other tools that rely on historical estimates are a solid start. Meanwhile, simulated “digital factories” like aPriori provide a much more detailed, agile approach to linking design decisions to cost outcomes.
