Why Design for Manufacture?

To create a better product that delivers real commercial success. DFM is proactively designing products to optimise all manufacturing functions and assure the best cost, quality, reliability, time to market and customer satisfaction.

Good DFM is critical because by the time a product is designed only 8% of the total budget may have been spent, but 80% of the product cost will have been determined. Good DFM in the early stages of product development can have a huge impact not only on the end product cost, but on the time it takes to get production stable and deliver product to market.

Optimise costs
Increase margin
