Abstract

Design for Manufacturability (DFM) is a philosophy that encourages the communication of manufacturing information at the earliest stages of design in order to design parts and products that can be produced with greater ease and economy. This paper discusses the extensive experience gathered during the development of several DFM models in order to draw some conclusions and express some concerns that should be of interest to all those who develop or use manufacturing models that rely on design knowledge acquisition of knowledge from domain experts and/or industrial sites.
