Integrating DFM with CAD through Design Critiquing



Satyandra K. Gupta, William Regli, D Nau


The increasing focus on design for manufacturability (DFM) in research in concurrent engineering design is expanding the scope of traditional design activities in order to identify and eliminate manufacturing problems during the design stage. We anticipate this approach can be used to build a multi-domain environment that will allow designers to create higher-quality products that can be more economically manufactured. This will reduce the need for redesign and reduce product cost and lead time.
