1:45 PM A unique practice on Design for Manufacturability and Assembly

Research shows 70 ~ 80 % of product and production cost is decided by product design, thus a major way to reduce manufacturing cost is through better design.  TE Connectivity Telecom Division adopted a unique practice on Design for Manufacturability and Assembly (DFMA) through its Lean Design For Six Sigma (LDFSS) program.

  • For new products, right after the 1st prototype, a unique DFMA event is held to jointly address a whole host of manufacturing related concerns: modularity / part reuse, Lean manufacturing & assembly, field installation & maintenance, FMEA, etc
  • DFMA events are also used to improve productivity through redesigning existing products
  • It has achieved great results and become part of the culture
