Manufacturability Assessment

Manufacturability Assessment

Through Bent River Machine’s automation experience , they have developed a Manufacturability Assessment aimed at identifying Mechanical and Electrical design enhancements that can significantly improve manufacturability and product quality without compromising functionality. By including the Manufacturability Assessment as a part of the product lifecycle process, clients can avoid costly re-designs when products move from prototypes to manufacturing. The deliverables are focused on assessing a product through a series of questions that have been developed from experience building manufacturing equipment and industry DFMA (design for manufacturing, assembly) standards. The scope of the assessment is dependent on the complexity of the product; however, the deliverables remain consistent: prioritized design changes and a written report of the findings. This process is broken down into three phases:

  1. Assess
  2. Idea Generation
  3. Impact Prioritization

Benefit

After years of watching Customers go through costly re-designs to enhance the manufacturability of their products, Bent River decided to provide a service which helps eliminate these costly occurrences. By incorporating the Manufacturability Assessment focused on DFMA principles in the lifecycle management process, Clients can expect both quality and cost benefit when product design transfers into manufacturing.
