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, Houston students learn:

DFA Training Course Overview:

DFA training describes Design for Assembly - how Houston 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.

Bayou City - Energy Capital of the World

Excellent choice! Houston began with discovery of oil at the Spindletop oil field near Beaumont. Oil combined with Galveston's hurricane devastation encouraged investment in the Houston ship channel and deep water Port of Houston. WWWII spurred ship building. Development of air conditioning made Houston's low cost of living more attractive to northern companies who began relocating there. Aerospace emerged. And Houston has flourished becoming the 4th largest city in the US by population. As such, Houston will keep you busy after DFA Training with popular museums, the zoo, huge stadiums, malls, possibly the world's largest rodeo, gardens, and a stunning aquarium.

Steve was one of the great managers that I was fortune to work with and from whom I learned many of my improvement techniques. He was my Master Black Belt in 6 Sigma. I contribute much of my success to him for teaching me the first steps along my journey to excellence. His encouragement and leading by example continue to be the guidance for many of my engineering projects. Many great managers and engineers are his students and receive the benefit from his training.
