Design for Excellence from Inception:
The decisions made by engineers in the design phase can significantly impact the cost, quality, and time to market of a product. As 30 to 35% of engineering efforts are consumed to rework due to problems with downstream manufacturability or assembly, it is becoming increasingly essential to incorporate Design for Excellence methodology into the product development process.
HCL DFMPro software is designed to help engineers make better design decisions by identifying and fixing downstream manufacturability, assembly, serviceability, and quality-related issues early on in the design process. It makes it easier to implement DFx methodologies and guidelines consistently and helps improve the design process. Manufacturers can use DFM rules in the form of manufacturing best practices for major manufacturing processes, like machining, turning, drilling, plastics/injection molding, sheet metal, welding, casting, and assembly.
This webinar will cover the following topics:
- DFX and digital transformation.
- Design for Excellence- What is it?
- Sustainable Design through Manufacturing Strategy
- How early DFX/DFM creates positive impact on design
- Why DFMPro/DFX?
Key takeaways of the webinar are:
- The importance of DFX from inception
- Three main goals of DFX
- Understanding the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for product design
