DFX Analysis Applied to Composite Products

The concept of concurrent engineering (CE) has changed the traditional process of design to an integrated process, comprising all aspects of design, manufacturing, costing, process control etc. In

Integrated product-process design to suggest appropriate manufacturing technology: a review

The materials and manufacturing processes are evolving very rapidly subject to today’s high performance, shorter lead times, and high part complexity needs. With over 80,000 materials, various

Early Cost Estimate of Product during Design Stage Using Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) Principles

Application of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Design for Assembly (DFA) methodologies can be beneficial to industries involved in the design and development of products. Improper design decisions

An Assembly-Oriented Design Framework for Additive Manufacturing

The shape complexity capability of additive manufacturing (AM) is currently the main thrust of the design for AM (DFAM) research. In order to aid designers embracing that complexity-for-free

Construction-Oriented Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) 1 Guidelines 2

Construction-Oriented Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) Guidelines. Abstract The pursuit of modern product sophistication and production efficiency has bolstered Design 8 for Manufacture and

An Investigation of the Applicability of DfX Tools during Design Concept Evolution

Design stage is very critical as many decisions impacting the downstream development activities and the product cost are made in this stage. Over the years, numerous “Design for X (DfX)”

A Design for Disassembly Approach to Analyze and Manage End-of-Life Options for Industrial Products in the Early Design Phase

In modern society there has been an increase in consumption and discard of goods and products due to the high growth of the world population. Moreover, in the manufacturing field rapid technology

Design for human safety in manufacturing systems: applications of design theories, methodologies, tools and techniques

ABSTRACT During recent decades, there has been growing awareness of human safety in the design process. The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on design for human safety (DfHS) in
