The importance of exercising DFM methodology and automation tools that leverage use of 3D CAD data to inform and advise product design with regard to the manufacturing process.
Many organizations design products with goals of high quality, minimized cost, and satisfied schedule requirements. Unfortunately, a lot of companies fall short of realizing these goals due to neglecting a critical design/engineering practice…checking the product design in regards to manufacturability. The adoption of a Design for Manufacturability review process is key to enabling first time quality of design and satisfaction of product requirements.
Moreover, utilizing DFM analysis automation will enable reuse of CAD data and organizational DFM guideline information, relevant for a specified manufacturing technology, to aid in the concurrent engineering process to create optimal designs that are economical, manufacturable, testable, high in quality, and high in reliability.
This presentation will focus on the importance of DFM analysis and automation tools that leverage use of 3D CAD data to inform and advise product design with regard to the manufacturing process.

3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress
The 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress (3D CIC) focuses on 3D CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. The 2018 theme of Enterprise Accountability will bring together real users to share experiences and learn about the topics of Culture & Champions, Quality, and Manufacturing. 3D CIC 2018 will be held October 15-18, 2018 at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado.
