The purpose of DFx (Design for x variable) is to achieve alignment between the design of a product and production processes, as early as possible. The outcome? Optimized cost and quality in a way that is aligned with the unique needs of each individual customer. This presentation will cover 10 essential tips to help you navigate as you transition from design to manufacturing. Design for manufacturing, assembly, testing, and service are not always considered during initial product design and prototyping.

Topics covered include:
  • Steps for moving from prototyping to manufacturing
  • Challenges for products with electrical, mechanical or electromechanical, and/or assemblies to full systems
  • 10 Considerations for alignment with production/manufacturing
