Design for Manufacture

Design For ManufactureDesign for Manufacture (DFM) is the process of minimising product cost by examining designs for ease of manufacture. This is done by reviewing materials, product features and tolerances to eliminate cost drivers, without compromising product integrity. At all times the OEM or Design Authority has ultimate control. DFM is about meeting market demand through a combination of design knowledge and manufacturing expertise to achieve the best value for money.
