DFMPro is an easy-to-use Design for Manufacturing (DFM) solution, fully integrated inside CATIA V5 that can identify & correct potential downstream manufacturing issues leading to reduction of cycle time and, in turn, resulting in high-quality products with lower product development costs.

DFMPro helps to capture and disseminate the industry best-practices and knowledge in form of DFM guidelines and brings in standardization across the organization.


  • Early design feedback based on downstream best practices, Avoid costly rework and design iterations
  • Early visibility into product cost right when designs are getting created – Understand cost drivers, impacts & trends as a result of design change
  • Improve time-to-market by eliminating rework, design iterations and late-stage cost surprises
  • Reduce product cost at design stage- 70% of the product cost is determined at the design stage and optimized designs have better impact on reducing overall product cost

Validate your CATIA V5 designs for manufacturability

Reduces rework and improves productivity by as much as 15%

  • DFMPro validates upstream manufacturability, identifying design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture
  • Automates and formalizes the design review process using best-practice handbooks and industry associations
  • Evaluates design models for manufacturing and assembly and suggests corrective actions based on library of 300+ design rules for core manufacturing processes
  • Provides a mechanism for capturing best practice knowledge and brings in standardization across the organization

During the demo, we will show:

  • How you can run DFM checks at the click of button plus edit and update your part designs in the CAD environment
  • Get an in-depth look at out-of the box DFM guidelines available in DFMPro
  • Collaborative reports generated by DFMPro on sample parts
  • How you can customize DFMPro rules as per your organization specific processes and design best practices
  • Learn global best practices along with organizational know-how as you design
