DfM Courses

During this course you will learn to use the DfM approach.
The course shows how the three draft selection criteria are to be collated.
This requires knowledge of product and manufacturing processes. To make estimates regarding 1) the function, 2) the total time necessary for production on time and 3) (still to be made) cost up to a few years in production.
And that extended to multiple design alternatives of interest.
Our DfM approach focuses also on the D of DfM of which we mean that the focus is on underpinning design-decisions and of course knowledge of production processes is important. How knowledge of creative production processes are collected and deployed herein, is also part of the course (see further info under tab 'what is DfM’)

Those responsible for design decisions
Designers with experience in product design; especially mechanical
