On a global average, 30% of product development time is spent on rework – designing a product ­first, then optimizing it later to meet downstream manufacturing requirements. Consideration of manufacturability and assembly issues during early design stage can shorten product development time, minimize cost and ensure a smooth transition into production with minimal rework.

Incorporating years of functional expertise, DFMPro is engineered to help designers check their designs for manufacturability and assembly and correct these problems early in the design stage. It automates the iterative design process via a series of rules-based checks, identifying design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. It helps organization improve engineering efficiency by minimizing rework and engineering changes (ECOs).
