Winning in today’s global marketplace requires more than just creating innovative product designs. Sustainable competitive advantage requires speed to market and strong margins. To succeed, you must design products right the first time for optimal manufacturing, cost, quality, time, and functionality.
DFMPro, a CAD-integrated design for manufacturing software helps you identify and correct downstream issues early in the design stage, leading to reduction of cycle time and, in turn, resulting in high-quality products with lower product development costs.
On a global average, 30% of product development time is spent on rework – designing a product first, then optimizing it later to meet downstream manufacturing requirements. Consideration of manufacturability and assembly issues during early design stage can shorten product development time, minimize cost and ensure a smooth transition into production with minimal rework. Incorporating years of functional expertise, DFMPro is engineered to help designers check their designs for manufacturability and assembly and correct these problems early in the design stage. It automates the iterative design process via a series of rules-based checks, identifying design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. It helps organization improve engineering efficiency by minimizing rework and engineering changes (ECOs).
