DFX Analysis Service

DFX (Design for Excellence) analysis is a method of evaluating the design of a product or system to identify potential improvements and optimize its performance, reliability, and manufacturability. The goal of DFX analysis is to ensure that the design meets the requirements of the customer, is cost-effective to produce, and can be manufactured and assembled efficiently.

The so-called DFX (Design for X design for each link of the product life cycle) abbreviation. Among them, X can represent the product life cycle or one of its links, such as assembly (M-manufacturing, T-test), processing, use, maintenance, recycling, scrapping, etc., and can also represent product competitiveness or factors that determine product competitiveness , such as quality, cost (C), time, and so on. include:

  1. Design for Manufacturability (DFM): This involves analyzing the design to ensure that it can be produced efficiently and cost-effectively using the available manufacturing equipment and processes.
  2. Design for Assembly (DFA): This involves analyzing the design to minimize the number of parts, simplify assembly, and reduce the time and effort required to assemble the product.
  3. Design for Test (DFT): This involves analyzing the design to ensure that it can be easily and efficiently tested to verify that it meets all requirements.
  4. Design for Reliability (DFR): This involves analyzing the design to identify potential reliability issues and implement measures to improve the reliability of the product.
  5. Design for Serviceability (DFS): This involves analyzing the design to ensure that the product can be easily serviced and maintained over its lifecycle.

The design here not only refers to the design of the product, but also refers to the design of the product development process and system. In product design, not only functional and performance requirements, but also factors related to each stage of the product’s entire life cycle must be considered. Including the possibility of manufacturing, high efficiency and economy, etc. Its goal is to shorten the development cycle and reduce costs under the premise of ensuring product quality. This is concurrent engineering in a design.

DFX technology is one of the supporting tools of concurrent engineering. It is an integrated design technology oriented to the whole life cycle of products. It integrates computer technology, manufacturing technology, system integration technology and management technology, and fully embodies the idea of systemization. It is a new design technology that considers the performance, quality, manufacturability, assemblability, testability, product service and price of the product as early as possible in the design stage, and optimizes or redesigns the product.

The most common DFX techniques are:

• Design for Assembly (DFA), Design for Manufacturing (DFM), Design for Compatibility (DFC), Design for Variety (DFV), Green Design (Design for Green, DFG) and logistics design (Design for Logistics, DFL), etc.

• Assembly-oriented design is a design technique that analyzes the mating relationship of parts. It provides a quantitative method for determining assembly at an early stage in product design. Its principles include minimum parts count, minimum contact surface and ease of assembly. Similarly, design for manufacturing introduces principles such as the principle of least parts and the principle of ease of manufacture to guide the design of products.

• In performance-oriented design, the design team examines all independent rule sets related to the product from the perspective of the entire product life cycle, thereby completing product interface and function design, part feature design, processing method selection, manufacturability design and process plan select etc.

• Solution-oriented design is to select the least expensive solution from different design solutions, which involves factors such as the number of product design solutions, product design stages, and the cost of product design changes. Green design refers to considering the use of products in the whole life from the perspective of the impact on the environment when designing products.

• Logistical design means that designers use different constraints to design products, such as cost-driven constraints, minimum time constraints, and so on.
