Online training on Design For Assembly [DFA] - Fundamental Principles

Focus Areas

  • Introduction to DFM & A
  • To provide an overview of Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) techniques, used to minimize product cost
  • Explain how product design has a primary influence
  • Basic criteria for Part Minimization
  • Quantitative analysis of a design’s efficiency
  • Critique product designs for ease of assembly
  • Mistake proofing (Poka – Yoke)


Design for assembly (DFA) is a process through which products are designed keeping in mind ease of assembly. Designer would reduce the part count by making parts multi task capable by taking advantage of latest manufacturing techniques. And the parts are provided with features which make it easier to grasp, move, orient and insert them, this will also reduce assembly time and assembly costs. The reduction of the number of parts in an assembly has the added benefit of generally reducing the total cost of parts in the assembly. This is usually where the major cost benefits of the application of design for assembly occur.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising Webinar on ”Design For Assembly [DFA] - Fundamental Principles”.
