The Importance of Design for Manufacturability (DFM)
We Offer the Tools for Successful Product Development
A clear understanding of the manufacturing process is essential for product developers to create successful products and at Xcentric we provide you the tools to do so.
Before Design for Manufacturability it was a common struggle between designer and supplier. The "I designed it now, you build it" mentality caused I am sure many heated debates. Often products were designed and pushed forward, leaving manufacturers with the task of trying to figure out how to create a product that was not designed for manufacturability, often delaying products time to market and slowing down the process.
When you work with Xcentric we can provide you with an easy to understand Design for Manufacturability report. This enables us to provide you with quick feedback about your parts early in the development process allowing you to create better end-products.
Saving you time, development costs, improving productivity and accelerating your products time-to-market. It is much easier to review a product early in the development process and less costly to correct issues than during the manufacturing stage. Our team would be happy to discuss your...
