This is the companion presentation to the DFiM (Design for Innovation Manufacturing), this presentation contains the checklist on how to use and apply DFiM in your design, manufacturing, and NPI / NPD processes.

Design for Innovation in Manufacturing (DFiM) is a framework for avoiding costly and time consuming defects within product development process by integrating novel and innovative changes in the process of supporting products in the NPI (New Product Introduction) / NPD (New Product Development) process.

DFiM helps reduce risk and uncertainty, especially when combined with DFM tools that virtually represent the mfg. envelope because it targets the limiting effects of the process envelope on new / novel product changes.

  2. 2. WHAT IS DESIGN FOR INNOVATION IN MANUFACTURING?  Design for Innovation in Manufacturing (DfIM) is a framework for avoiding costly and time consuming defects within product development process by integrating novel and innovative changes in the process of supporting products in the NPI (New Product Introduction) process  Processes and tools used illustrate (in the accompanying DFiM presentation) on how to modify the product development processes in parallel and collaboration with NPI engineers building-in-innovation opportunities in to the products and the processes as well as helping to sustain higher levels of quality and maintain cost controls while introducing new, novel, unique and patentable solutions  DfIM helps reduce risk and uncertainty, especially when combined with DFM tools that virtually represent the mfg. envelope because it targets the limiting effects of the process envelope on new / novel product changes.  Note: Only a three of the tools of the SI (Systematic Innovation) toolkit were used and applied in this version of a DFiM checklist, it is true that there other SI tools that can and should be used if there is a particularly challenging problem that needs to be addressed. (For an illustration of all of the tools in Systematic Innovation toolbox- refer to page after the checklist) 2The Strategy + Innovation Group | All Rights Reserved - Copyright (c)
  3. 3. NOTES FOR DFIM USE AND APPLICATION  The application and use of DFM/A is a well established methodology for managing the introduction of new product designs being introduced into the manufacturing process (what we call the manufacturing envelope)  The DFiM approach complements the typical DFM/A approach that many OEM’s and contract manufacturing firms use today in modern manufacturing processes  The checklist here was specifically defined for application in the electronics engineering, PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) and H/W System DFM/A processes. While it is generic, it can equally be applied in the semiconductor EDA domain, without issue, as these processes are very closely related.  It is also applicable for other manufacturing processes where DFM/A is applied  metal machining  sheet metal processing  wood processing  plastics production  powder metallurgy  metal forging  and welding If you would like more information on standard DFM/A checklists, please check out these links: Design for Manufacturability Guidelines Design for Assembly – The Lucas Method The Strategy + Innovation Group | All Rights Reserved - Copyright (c)
