Why Does Design For Manufacturability Matter?

3D Innovations

What is Design for Manufacturability? Design for Manufacturability (DFM) is the process of being proactive during the product design phase by considering the manufacturing stage of product development at the start of the design cycle. Overall development costs are minimized when DFM is utilized because the product design, from the onset, aims to reduce the number of parts that need to be manufactured which speeds up assembly. Design parts to be multi-functional.
