An Introduction to Design for Manufacture and Assembly

An Introduction to Design for Manufacture and Assembly

The key difference between FMEA and DFMEA is that FMEA is used for products, processes and services in organizations whereas DFMEA is used only for designs of products.

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) can be the difference between making a loss and making a profit. This course aims to introduce the quantitative assessment of not just DFMA but Design for cost effective DFMA.

The course is particularly valuable for Engineers and Engineering Managers who are unfamiliar with formal DFMA assessment. The Participants will gain an understanding of Design for Manufacture (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) focusing on numerical assessment leading to Part Minimization and Design Efficiency. The training focuses on DFMA techniques which reduce product cost through Design and Manufacture improvements.

OUR COURSE

WHAT IS Failure Mode Effects Analysis?

FMEA stands for Failure Mode Effects Analysis. FMEA is an approach to identify all possible failures in a design, in operations or assembly processes and in a product or service. The methodology of FMEA categorizes all failures based on the likelihood and severity of the failure. “Failure mode” refers to any defects or errors in design, process, or item, which affect the customer. Meanwhile, effects analysis refers to the study of the consequences of the failures.

Furthermore, FMEA documents existing knowledge and actions related to risks of failures and uses them to motivate continual improvement. FMEA usually begins at the earliest theoretical stages of design and continues throughout the life span of the product or service.

The course is supported by comprehensive notes and DFMA analysis templates to enable the attendees to undertake their own formal DFMA process post training. Multiple DFMA worked examples are undertaken to ensure the attendees gain a broad comprehension of the methods.

COURSE STRUCTURE

The course is broken down into four 1-hour Webinar sessions, an overview follows:

SESSION 1

SESSION 2

SESSION 3

SESSION 4

Tunley Engineering will issue course notes to all Attendees prior to the training, questions during the Webinar training can be submitted through the live chat and or via email.
