Tips for Leveraging the Modern Design for Manufacturability Approach


Wednesday, June 16 | 3:15 pm - 4:00 pm


Room 49




Participant Type:

Product Development, Manufacturing

The real benefits of design for manufacturability (DFM) extend well beyond approval from manufacturing. Product development leaders should leverage a DF(x) mentality and the myriad considerations that often fall under the DFM umbrella—material, product launch, special process validation, total throughput, marketing—but don’t always get their due diligence in the design process.

This session provides examples of the updated DF(x) approach in action and highlights DF(x)’s impact on the design process, departmental relationships and the business.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the DF(x) approach

  • How DF(x) benefits the design process while quantifying and eliminating waste

  • Knowledge of nontraditional approaches to DFM that should be considered in your design process
