During this session, we will focus on the principles of design for manufacturability (DFM) with part fabrication. First, we will discuss how to reduce cost by considering different process and material alternatives. Content will cover the economics of near net shape part fabrication, when there is sufficient volume. Then, we will cover guidelines related to machining, sheet metal, and stampings.

Learning Objectives
During this session, participants will learn how to:
  • Identify different material and process alternatives to reduce cost
  • Consider near net shape part fabrication to reduce recurring cost
  • Apply guidelines for improve machining of parts
  • Identify the factors related to sheet metal design
  • Apply guidelines to optimize stampings

Who Should Attend:
This series is recommended for anyone involved in product design, manufacturing engineering, or manufacturing management. 
  • Design engineers
  • Product engineers
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • Mechanical engineers 
  • Process engineers
  • Quality engineers
