One of the most powerful techniques for reducing production costs, DFMA
forces designs to be analysed for assembly ease and shows how to re-design
to reduce time-to-market, and increase production efficiency. The course is
based upon the Boothroyd Dewhurst approach, and provides a step-by-step
framework to enable immediate application in the workplace.


-To provide measurable assessment of assembly difficulties
- To challenge part count & simplify designs
- To provide guidance in good product assembly features
- To use actual product examples, to show best-practice
- To assess re-design effectiveness


Basic Theory of Manual Assembly Analysis

-The need for better assembly by design
- The Boothroyd Dewhurst method
- Reducing part count to generate savings in material and overhead costs 

The DFA Steps & Best Practice Examples

- Improving manual assembly methods (handling & insertion etc)
- Total time calculation
- Minimum parts count analysis
- Comparing efficiency of different designs and assembly systems
- Improvement identification
- Categorising re-design ideas, analysis and verification
