This session will continue to address the principles of DFA, picking up with guidelines to locate and insert parts onto or into an assembly. It will address guidelines related to interconnections. Then, we will cover methods for joining and fastening such as integral attachment, threaded fasteners, adhesives, etc. Finally, we will address DFM/A guidelines related to fabrication of printed circuits boards and assembly of these boards.

Learning Objectives
During this session, participants will learn how to:
  • Apply guidelines for location of insertion of parts during assembly
  • Consider guidelines for interconnections and connectors
  • Reduce axes of assembly and take advantage of gravity with top-down assembly
  • Identify guidelines for common joining and fastening techniques
  • Apply DFA principles to package design
  • Apply DFM/A principles to printed circuit board fabrication and assembly

Who Should Attend:
