Connecting CAD and DFMA: Improving Efficiencies Leveraging Tools You May Already Have

Session Description

Attendees will discover how implementing DFMA (Design For Manufacturability and Assembly) into their everyday CAD processes can drive true cost savings while leveraging existing CAD tools. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly is proven to transform your product lifecycle without large scale corporate culture changes. In the 90’s, analysts predicted savings of 50% or more in time-to-market, product cost, manufacturing lead times and time to assemble. The results have shown real savings that met or exceeded expectations. In this session we will use real world cases of DFMA to demonstrate how simple changes to the design process can dramatically improve the product lifecycle, and the pivotal role the CAD user plays in the DFMA process. Attendees will see how these techniques link everyday CAD functions to the DFMA process, and leave with a basic understanding of how they can incorporate DFMA improvements through their organization without having to change the corporate culture.
