Applying multi-disciplinary knowledge in support of producibility analysis and design-for-manufacturing


  • Considering cost up-front during design is becoming top priority
  • Addressing affordability early in the product lifecycle
  • Identifying realistic cost requires collaboration with manufacturing


  • Leverage software tools that use the 3D CAD model
  • Address affordability with producibility analysis and DFM
  • Engage manufacturing engineering in cost estimation


  • Reduces the likely total unit cost during production
  • Institutionalizes a culture of treating cost as performance
  • Provides for more contract wins and greater profit margins


  • Experienced with various DFM methodologies
  • Expertise in using 3D tools for producibility analysis
  • Understand the various approaches for cost estimating
