DFMA

What is DFMA?

The decisions you make can cost you. Whether your goal is cost leadership in your industry or differentiating your products from the competition, you can achieve a sustainable competitive advantage when product sourcing, manufacturing, and design decisions are based on early cost knowledge that you can count on.

If your goal is to improve your products without increasing your costs, then the lack of cost detail can really hold you back. Product developers often find themselves relying on historical manufacturing and assembly costs recorded for previous or similar versions of a product, for example, or on supplier best estimates. Usually, designers have no way of accurately quantifying whether the specific innovation they are contemplating will increase or reduce overall product cost.
