Design for Manufacturability


Reduce Lead Times by 80%          Reduce WIP by up to 90%           Reduce Floor Space by 75%           Improve Quality by 50%

Design for Manufacturability Flier


Design for Manufacturability is a methodology that can dramatically reduce the part numbers and complexity of engineered parts, weldments and assemblies. Engineers and designers learn techniques to simplify the designs, making the parts easier to cut, weld and assemble: yet get better characteristics from the finished product. Material costs and labor hours savings are quickly realized. During the workshop, they will review assembly processes during two practical exercises, and create action item list for changes to designs.

This is a perfect course for any company with an Engineering Department. The techniques can be applied to new designs, or to simplify current products.

The workshop is designed for up to 12 people.

The workshop is 2 full days for a total of 16 hours.

Participants should have completed a basic training course in lean manufacturing principles such as Lean 101 or equivalent.

Course Content
Participants will learn the methods of DFM to reduce material content costs and labor hours needed, then practice what they have learned on two separate case studies.

Target Area
During the workshop, application activities will occur on some products at the participants’ facility. The team will be tasked with applying DFM principles, resulting in design changes that can be applied immediately.
