Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) - Product Costing and Simplification
Product development teams face many difficult challenges. Typically, the cost of production is the factor that must be relegated to satisfy other goals. But what if every goal could be met, including a 50% reduction in the cost of production? Since 1983 Boothroyd Dewhurst Inc., the global leader in DFMA, has turned this dream into a reality.
In recognition, co-founders Geoffrey Boothroyd and Peter Dewhurst were awarded the National Medal of Technology Award by President George Bush. The award cites the use of DFMA methods and software as having “dramatically reduced costs, improved product quality, and enhanced the competitiveness of major U.S. Manufacturers.”
DFM Product Costing allows you to generate accurate part and tooling cost estimates for new designs and alternative materials and processes; evaluate supplier quotations against should-costing estimates; generate realistic estimates for target costing initiatives; and benchmark competitors’ products.
DFA Product Simplification will guide you to eliminate unnecessary parts and processes resulting in significant cost savings; improve communication between design and manufacturing by establishing a concurrent engineering approach to product development; and shorten product development time through reduced engineering changes.
