In traditional design processes, the product is conceptualized and components are designed according to performance requirements, while simultaneously manufacturing requirements are considered. Thus, the full system is developed. Once it’s decided that a component will be made of a specific material and a certain manufacturing process will be used, the part designer can continue to design within the limitations of that material and process. The advanced knowledge of any particular process is usually dependent on the source for the tooling or the manufacturing department. Through discussions and detailed investigation, a more refined part design can be obtained that meets both design and manufacturing requirements.

Because of the need for this simultaneous engineering process, as well as the heavy influence of manufacturing on a cost-effective design, it is important to understand new technologies and methods that allow this process to be completed earlier in the design cycle. In the case described above, imagine a stamped metal component is being designed, and considerations for the manufacturability and quality need to be investigated. This 30-minute Webinar examines an engineering method that understands the relationship between designed features and manufacturing cost and quality. It explains how performing analysis early in the design cycle will reduce late design changes due to manufacturing problems, recognize quality issues, and reduce the unwanted influence to other components and the overall system.
