  2. 2. Edward C. Lai What is DFMA? & Associates A proactive product design process that focuses on meeting customer requirements while balancing among cost, quality and performance. It is a concurrent engineering team approach that involves engineering, manufacturing and suppliers early in the design cycle. The best results occur when DFMA is used in the product conceptual stage. The cross-functional team work towards minimizing the number of components, manufacturing steps and operations while designing to proven manufacturing capabilities. Optimal Thinking® is the core of all activities. © 2009, Edward C. Lai and Associates. OPTIMAL THINKING® is a registered trademark of The World Academy of Personal Development Inc.

  5. 5. Edward C. Lai How to Attack Complexity ? & Associates One Bite at a Time • Apply Design Simplification Rules • Challenge “Old” Beliefs • Take a “New” look at Current Design • Work as a Team • Use a Facilitated Process © 2009, Edward C.

  7. 7. Edward C. Lai DFMA Basic Principles & Associates 1. Minimize the number and types of parts used in the assembly 2. Minimize the use of fasteners (number & types) 3. Standardize (e.g. material, finishes, parts, processes, tooling, etc.) 4. Avoid difficult components (e.g. open-ended springs, small/loose HW, etc.) 5. Use modular subassemblies 6. Use multifunctional parts 7. Minimize reorientation & assembler awkward movements (e.g. stooping, bending, reaching, tugging, balancing, etc.) 8. Use self-locating features (e.g. molded shapes, keying, chamfers, dimples) 9. Avoid special tooling/test equipment 10. Provide accessibility for assembly, test/inspection and rework 11. Minimize operations & process steps (including excess handling, etc.) Eliminate...Minimize...Standardize...”Productionize” © 2009, Edward C. Lai and Associates.
