Design For Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) – Plastics, Sheetmetal, Castings, Forgings and Machined parts

Design For Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) – Plastics, Sheetmetal, Castings, Forgings and Machined parts

Date : 22 to 26 August, 2022   Time : 0940 Hrs to 1300 Hrs   Location / Mode : Online


With ever shrinking time available for developing new products and bringing them to global markets, manufacturing enterprises have been forced to continuously adopt new methods to survive. One approach is to use Design for Manufacturing/Assembly (DFM/DFA) methods where products are systematically designed and evaluated to minimize set-ups during production operations, component counts and overall product complexity. DFMA will help designers to build quality into robust design at least cost. In addition to achieving quicker product development and reducing cost of product development, DFMA also ensures that the transition from the design phase to the production phase is as smooth and rapid as possible.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organising an online training on Design for Manufacturing and Assembly. This training will enable organizations to develop products reducing manufacturing and assembly costs, improving quality and speeding time to market.

  • Objectives and Principles of DFM & A
  • Understanding of product design process
  • Guidelines Design for ease of assembly, per Boothroyd / Dewhurst principles
  • Theoretical part count efficiency.
  • Guidelines for Design efficiency calculations, per Boothroyd / Dewhurst principles
  • Guidelines for Design of Casting and Forging, parting line selection, draft, mismatch and other allowances that would help easy manufacturing
  • Guidelines for Design for Manufacturing (DFM): Castings / Forgings / Sheet metal, plastic and machined parts
  • Overview on Techniques to improve Assembly cycle time, Poka-Yoke (mistake-proofing)

  • Understand various stages in product design process
  • Learn Design based on Boothroyd / Dewhurst principles
  • Understanding various mistake proof techniques, Poka-Yoke
  • Reduction of part count
  • Learn design efficiency calculations
  • Able to apply DFMA principles in design and development

This Program will be conducted by Mr. Manoharan,  Mr. Ganapathi K N & Mr. Joseph Abraham
