Design for manufacturing, also known as design for manufacturability or DFM, is the process of engineering or design that involves figuring out the easiest way to manufacture a product and incurring the lowest possible cost. This concept is used in almost all engineering disciplines, but the application greatly differs depending on the manufacturing technology used. But generally, the goals of design for manufacturing are reducing costs (material, overhead, and labor), shortening the product development cycle, and focusing on the standards to reduce costs. 

The DFM process involves reviewing the material selection, secondary processes (such as plating and finishing), dimensional requirements, and final packaging. With the help of a professional design for manufacturing freelancer, you can fix potential problems of a product during the design phase, avoiding unnecessary and huge costs later on. Key principles of the DFM process include standardizing part and materials, minimizing part count, designing for efficient joining, and simplifying and reducing the number of manufacturing operations. DFM specialists also help to create modular assemblies, minimize the re-orientation of parts during assembly and machining, and specify acceptable surface finishes for functionality.

Design for manufacturing is indeed a vital discipline in the manufacturing industry, especially at a time when mass production requires deep and complex skills and knowledge. That is why it is critical to work with a designer who doesn’t just consider how the end user will interact with a product, but also thinks carefully about the manufacturing process when creating designs. In order to create a successful product, a skilled and talented DFM expert uses efficient manufacturing technologies and a deep understanding of the discerning customer. With such expertise, manufacturers can avoid poor design choices that lead to costly overruns or production problems.

A top-talent freelance DFM designer adds huge value to the development of any new consumer product. And that it is why we want to make sure you work only with the best design for manufacturing experts for your new project.
