How to Enhance Productivity and Maximize Returns with DFMPro for NXTM
Excellence in product design is more than just innovation. Successful designs are often distinguished based on multiple fronts – manufacturability, quality, cost, and time to market. A product design that has not considered the downstream requirements poses a significant risk to business and overall time to market and costs. Addressing designs for manufacturability and assembly requirements is essential to meet program schedules, achieving high quality, reducing errors and rework, and controlling manufacturing costs. Only that design can be called a success which takes a holistic approach considering all the above factors.
Design for Manufacturability (DFM) & Design for Assembly (DFA) has been a practice for over a decade, in all industries, used in the early phases of product development. Current design approaches to address downstream requirements are a combination of many different ways including reference handbooks, product and industry standards checklist, cross-functional reviews, or design engineers’ tribal knowledge. Yet, rework and engineering changes happen too often late in the cycle, especially when they become expensive and time consuming to correct.
Getting designs right first time for multiple downstream requirements can be complex, and daunting. So how do you ensure product designs are optimized before they get to production?
DFMPro for NX™, a best practice driven design for manufacturing software integrated within NX™, help design engineers to identify and evaluate their designs for downstream manufacturability, assembly, quality, serviceability, (DFx) related issues upfront and reduce unnecessary rework and engineering changes.
