DFMA – Design for Manufacturing and Assembly
When starting a new project or reviewing the design of an existing device, Valtronic’s Research and Development team applies the DFMA methodology– Design for Manufacturing and Assembly. Working in close collaboration with the industrialization and manufacturing team, our engineering team knows all manufacturing constraints and takes them into account when performing their design. Key factors such as the Bill of Material (BOM), the test strategy must be addressed, but also other crucial factors such as clear manufacturing instructions. Operators need to understand all manufacturing steps and all assembly operations must be as easy as possible to perform to allow for repeatability, efficiency and quality. This approach minimizes iterations and allows for faster time to manufacturing and time to market. With our expertise and experience, we ensure a smooth transfer of your product to our manufacturing lines.
The New Product Introduction (NPI) Process
Onboarding a new project, your project, involves a cross-functional communication and a close collaboration with your teams. Valtronic applies the New Product Introduction (NPI) methodology to transfer all the knowledge of your team to ours and guarantee a seamless transition to our manufacturing lines. This generally involves sending a Valtronic team to your plant to fully understand all the manufacturing steps and perform all operations together with your operators. And if some redesign be necessary is necessary to optimize the manufacturing costs and cycle time, our Research and Development team have all the expertise and experience to help you optimize the manufacturing of your products.
