Version 10 of Boothroyd Dewhurst’s Design for Assembly (DFA) Product Simplification software features an improved user interface for speed and ease of use. According to the company, it also helps manufacturers develop more streamlined and profitable products. DFA 10 Product Simplification allows engineers to scrutinize parts and assemblies for structural efficiency, guiding them toward the creation of single, multifunctional components with improved performance-to-cost ratios, claims Boothroyd Dewhurst. The resulting products therefore enable companies to better reach their lean and value engineering goals by increasing manufacturing throughput and reducing the organizational footprint products make in their journey from design workstation to factory floor and on to the customer.
