Design for Manufacture and Assembly

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA)

What is DFMA?

DFMA is a technique that evaluates the product design at the drawing board stage itself, rather than after the proto type. It primarily focuses on the part count reduction and applicaiton of the lean philosophy in product development stage. It uses Functional analysis and classifies the essential components and the non-essential components which can be eliminated or combined with other component within the product assembly. It selects and plans proper joining methods for assembly and analyses each component with respect to feeding, gripping, insertion & fixing operations to ease the manufacturing and assembling of the product.


DFMA is a systematic methodology that reduces the manufacturing cost through reduction in the overall parts of the product and it involves redesigning the product parts, so the product will be easy to handle and assemble.
