Design for Manufacturability (DFM) is a common practice, essential in identifying the transformation of new product concepts into mass-produced medical devices. Your device might be innovative, but if it's too costly to produce, it may never get off the ground. Too often, issues arise because the initial design process was flawed. Planning for manufacturing cost savings during the design phase is critical for success. Topics covered include:
• What designers need to know about the manufacturing process.
• DFM tips and tricks not considered or under utilized.
• How to make the process more efficient to avoid negative implications.
