About DFA Training


Who is DFA Training for?

Design for Assembly is usually used by Product Design and Development Engineers. Manufacturing, Production, and Quality Engineers; and Procurement professionals must also know DFA to effectively participate in design reviews and assess and challenge the use of DFA or lack thereof. Managers of these functions should understand the terminology and concepts. If you are in or want to be in one of those roles, then DFA Training is for you. In our course, Kansas City students learn:

DFA Training Course Overview:

DFA training describes Design for Assembly - how Kansas City students can minimize total cost through ease of manufacturing and assembling their designs. Total cost means across the entire company or enterprise; not just total material cost or departmental cost of the Product Design team. Designers must consider implications of capital investment needed for production equipment, utilities, production labor, inspection labor, warranty, etc. Usually, theses costs can be reduced through product simplification, especially those requiring less parts. Students will see how to assess assembly methods, choose one, then quantify the assembly efficiency of their designs using the chosen assembly method.
