The pressures on manufacturers are relentless. Customers expect innovative products at lower cost and higher quality. Getting the design right at the beginning is key to meeting product cost, quality, and time to market objectives. Changes or rework due to manufacturing issues are expensive because of investments in time and/or materials and impacts being discovered after most of the investment has been made .CIMdata believes that incorporating a DFX strategy within design organizations can help companies produce better, more profitable products.

Perspective: Design for Manufacturing Software Delivers Improved Yield,Time to Market
There are a lot of common mistakes made during designing plastic parts which are manufactured through injection molding process. This leads to much iteration during product development stage leading to productivity loss of design engineers as well as experienced manufacturing employees. Worst, if these mistakes go undetected, they lead to defective or poor quality parts reaching the customer damaging company’s brand perception. Hence, it is essential to leverage expertise in plastic design to produce parts that maximize performance and are cost effective. If the expertise is available to the designer in the form of automated checks, many downstream defects can be detected at design stage itself.
Geometric has developed DFMPro, a CAD integrated solution, which offers manufacturability validation checks by incorporating global best practices as well as company specific design guidelines. Please refer this perspective from IDC Manufacturing Insights highlighting how a leading communications equipment manufacturer used DFMPro to improve plastic parts design in its product development process.
