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, Reno students learn:

DFA Training Course Overview:

DFA training describes Design for Assembly - how Reno 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.

Biggest Little City

Excellent choice! Reno's recent growth is from attracting large manufacturing, logistics, and data companies. Examples include Tesla's Gigafactory 1, Apple, Amazon, Google, Switch, Blockchains, Jet.com, eBay, and Wal-Mart. While corporate expansion makes Reno a good city for work-related DFA Training, it is also rich with recreational options. Mt. Rose is a popular snow skiing resort. Pyramid Lake is known for fishing; in-fact, its home to the world's largest Lahontan cutthroat trout. Rock hounders scour local hills in search of quartz and amethyst.

Our GD&T instructor was good at taking what could otherwise have been a boring topic and figuring out how to teach it in a way that helps you learn it.

I had an excellent and memorable experience of attending Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt training from a professional trainer, coach and industry expert who was hired by our organization to help with the transformation of company processes. Our Master Black Belt was not only knowledgeable in the subject but also had several years of hands-on experience working on complex projects, solving problems, applying and implementing Lean and Six Sigma techniques. His teaching skills were exceptional making it easy for everyone to clearly understand the concepts. He brought energy and motivation in the workforce and quickly won praise, recognition and respect from management, staff and shop floor employees. His knowledge transfer, coaching, and guidance helped improve several key processes and resulted in significant improvement in company KPIs and customer satisfaction level. I highly recommend him for his remarkable skills, knowledge, passion, and professional approach towards process and business excellence.
