Design for Manufacturability represents a new awareness of the importance of design as the first manufacturing step. It recognizes that a company cannot meet all its objectives with isolated design and manufacturing operations. The Design for Manufacturability approach embodies certain underlying imperatives that help maintain communication between all components of the Manufacturing and Design system and permit flexibility to adopt and to modify design during each stage of the product realization. Design for Manufacturability cannot be bought or sold and it should be implemented by management. Complete support of management to the implementation is very important to the success of the Design for Manufacturability.
In this thesis Design for Manufacturability and its inputs a proposed product concept, a proposed process concept and a set of design goals are explained, associated methodologies are discussed, and their effect on the design of a product and a plan implementation of design for manufacturability is developed.
