DESIGN for MANUFACTURING (DfM)
How to apply DfM
To be able to apply DfM, a good knowledge of the product and manufacturing processes are required.
This means that there must be enough knowledge and capacity present within the development team to realise the manufacturability aspects directly within the design.
There is usually enough attention to and knowledge of the behavioral aspects of the product, but attention and knowledge of manufacturing processes are often too narrow and/or too late.
