Designing for Manufacturing, also known as "DFM," is the process of optimizing the design of a part, product, or component to reduce costs, ensure timeline efficiency, and minimize reworks or quality concerns with the final product. For HB International's DFM process, this includes the collaboration amongst our team, customers, suppliers, and engineers. Together, the ultimate goal of DFM is to become more efficient in the manufacturing process, lessen expenses, all while simultaneously ensuring optimum product, part, or component quality and functionality.
