DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE AND ASSEMBLY ( DFMA)
It is a methodology to design activities that combine creativity and efficiency to optimize products for manufacturing, assembly and life cycle, taking into account that not only products are designed, but its services and processes.
The purpose of implementing the DFMA in industrial environments is to promote their knowledge to apply effectively to the design life cycle of the product , reducing the cost and complexity, to satisfy effectively the new social, economic and environmental requirements.
These methodologies and tools were introduced to the industry by Dr. Dr. Boothroyd and Dewhurst in 1983. In fact , they are the owners of the registered mark DFMA .
