What is DFM?


Design for Manufacturability (also sometimes known as design for manufacturing) is the engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture. The result is a finished product that could have otherwise been manufactured using many more steps and wasted effort. The basic idea exists in almost all engineering disciplines, but of course, the details differ widely depending on the manufacturing technology and the design team involved. This design practice not only focuses on the design aspect of a part but also on the producibility and the efficiency to deliver product. In simple language it means relative ease to manufacture a product, part or assembly that is marketable and desirable.
