  5. 5. LET’S TALK ABOUT  Voice of the Customer  Design for Manufacturability (DFM)  Building your Supply Chain  Resources to get started  Q&A
  6. 6. WHERE ARE YOU TODAY?
  7. 7. WHY DFM MATTERS… “70% of Manufacturing Costs are derived from Design decisions” https://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/shc17/DesignI/Dieter&Schmidt_Ch16_scan.pdf Of TOTAL COGS (Cost of Goods Sold)… ~72% are Manufacturing Costs 0.72 x 0.70 = 0.50 50% of your TOTAL COSTS are LOCKED at Transfer to Manufacturing
  8. 8. DFM: Cost of a Design Change IMAGE: Pradel, Patrick & Campbell, R.I. & Bibb, Richard. (2019). When Design Never Ends - A Future Scenario for Product Development. Proceedings of the Design Society: International Conference on Engineering Design. 1. 829-838. 10.1017/dsi.2019.87. EASY CHANGES! VERY EXPENSIVE CHANGES ITERATE 10x 100x 1000x 1x
  9. 9. DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURABILITY (DFM) Definition: Proactively designing products to optimize manufacturing ease and cost given form, fit, and function requirements. Goal: Reduce Material, Labor, and Overhead Costs DFM Optimizes: Procurement, Fab, Assembly, Test, Shipping, Service, & Repair DFM assures:  Time to Market  Cost  Quality  Reliability  Customer Satisfaction
  10. 10. VOICE OF THE CUSTOMER – We could, But should we?
  11. 11. VOICE OF THE CUSTOMER  Sometimes, as innovators, we can…fall in love  It can do this, this, & this!  Does the customer care?  Why get Voice of the Customer?  Problem Validation is key  Prioritizes your Product Development activities  It makes your product Sticky, drives customer loyalty  The easiest way to avoid R&D cost: DON’T DEVELOP IT! Lean Canvas – the first step
  12. 12. DFM: Is Everyone’s Job  Cross Functional: Marketing, Sales, Engineering, Quality, Suppliers  EX: What Marketing hears as PAIN POINT  Engineering may see as OBSTACLE  This includes your (potential) Manufacturer
  13. 13. DFM: Principles Overview  Start with the end in mind (manufacturing method)  Reduce Total # of Parts  Use Standard Materials & Components  Loose dimensional tolerances  Minimize Handling & Assembly Direction  Mistake Proof Assembly COMPLEXITY = TIME, TIME = MONEY
  14. 14. DFM: Principles  Start with the end in mind:  CNC Machining  Injection Molding  Sheet Metal Fabrication  Laser Jet / Water Jet Cutting  Casting  Collaborate with manufacturer MOTIVATION: Increase supply chain options
  15. 15. DFM: Principles  Reduce Total # of Parts, Part Types MOTIVATION: Reduce procurement cost, labor, defects Complexity = Time, Time = Money
  16. 16. DFM: Principles  Use Standard Materials & Components, when possible MOTIVATION: Lower Cost, Reduce Complexity of Supply Chain
  17. 17. DFM: Principles  Loose dimensional tolerances MOTIVATION: Lower cost, increase supplier choices
  18. 18. DFM: Principles  Minimize Handling & Assembly Challenges MOTIVATION: Lower cost, Reduce defects Restricted access Easier for assembler, no rotation required
  19. 19. DFM: Principles  Mistake Proof Your Assembly (Poka Yoka) Perfect Symmetry prevents error Exaggerated Asymmetry prevents error MOTIVATION: Lower labor cost, reduced defects
  20. 20. DFM: Principles  Modular Design MOTIVATION: Quality at the Source, Assembly easy, NPD easy
  21. 21. BUILDING YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN  Get Strategic w/ Manufacturing Partners  (Some) Contract Manufacturers will help with DFM & Prototyping  Build the relationship  Seek DFM Input early  Prototype / Pilot Run / Production Rate  Method of manufacture (can) change. Plan for this. Ideally, find a partner that can do all.  Volume Cures a lot of concerns  Increased interest from manufacturing partners  Costs closely linked with volume  Amortize NRE (Non-Recurring Engineering) costs over Time & Volume
  22. 22. QUOTE FROM LOCAL CONTRACT MANUFACTURER “Approach us an have an OPEN and HONEST conversation about your Product Maturity, Market Positioning, Funding, and Commercialization Path” “We know it is very hard to predict future volume, and that often things fall through” “There are 2 ways you can approach it” 1) Cash for the NRE Costs.(Non-Recurring Engineering) 2) Treat us like an Investor. We want to understand your business and the ROI of our investment in Engineering and Design work.
  23. 23.
