Design for Manufacturability and Assembly (DFM/A) Workshop

This two-day workshop includes many examples to illustrate DFM/A principles and exercises to develop practical DFM/A skills analyzing a design for manufacturability. It also introduces a DFM/A assessment methodology that can be subsequently used within an organization to analyze products.

Attendees will learn how to identify good and bad design for manufacturability, recognize how to reduce product costs before they are locked in, identify ways to simplify product architecture, and much more. On the second day of the event, participants will spend a significant amount of time analyzing a sample product in a hands-on exercise to reinforce one’s understanding of DFM/A principles as they apply to products and to introduce and use manual evaluation methodology. Registration is $1,325 for SME members and $1,525 for non-members.
