Despat has developed the DFMA Workshop/Training course to cover the basic requirements needed to successfully analyze product designs using the Boothroyd Dewhurst methodology. Using BDI’s Design for Manufacture and Assembly software, emphasis is placed on using the DFMA design philosophy in the design and redesign process. Hands on time with the software tools is maximized in this course.



DFMA Training / Workshop

DFMA® as a design measurement technique and Software is used by Fortune 1000 companies worldwide.We introduce a new approach to DFMA training and wish to share with you for your review.It includes a Training kit called the MOTOR ASSEMBLY SYSTEM. This kit contains actual parts of a real project that have to be assembled. This MOTOR ASSEMBLY SYSTEM will have 2 kits, one present design and one revised design product. The training also introduces a systematic approach to Analyze Product Designs and introduction to manufacturing, process, materials and operations used in industry is tutored with hands-on examples for each.

  • Participants to our workshop will be ready to apply the concepts & deploy DFMA software to their projects/products by the end of the training.
  • This 2 day /  3  day program is to sensitize the interested participants from industry & Faculty of Engineering colleges who wish to be sensitized on the subject and evaluate inclusion in their in-house DnD projects, Design Review and manufacturing cost analysis.

The DFMA® Short Course

  • The DFMA® Short Course has been developed for Faculty, Students and Industry engineers, manufacturing engineers, cost estimators and others interested in the design & production of high value products.
  • The goal of the DFMA® Short Course is to demonstrate how proper consideration of part manufacturing and assembly early in the product design stage can considerably improve the overall efficiency of the value stream.
  • The course will thoroughly discuss product simplification techniques and the associated part assembly time and cost estimating techniques required to make good, data-based design decisions.
  • Participants will also see how part cost estimates evolve into “should cost” estimates enabling data-based supply chain negotiations.
