CAD It Up! Working with a Design Engineer for Product Manufacturability
ACTION and the Chestnut Innovation Center present a panel discussion with a team of experts from the Merrimack Valley!
James Bleck, President, Bleck Design Group, Chelmsford, MA
James DiBurro, President, Round Rock Consulting, Bradford, MA
Dan Rocconi, President & CEO, Bixby International Corp., Newburyport, MA
Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the engineering art of designing products in order to facilitate the manufacturing process and thereby reduce the product production cost. Addressing problems in the design phase provides the opportunity to correct them before costly mistakes are made.
Engineers are skilled in the design, optimization and validation of your concepts, prototypes and next generation products and systems. Why just design for functionality? Make sure your products are designed for manufacturability, and in a cost-effective way to be price competitive.
Our panelists have deep design and manufacturing industry expertise and can advise you early in the product commercialization process to help avoid costly mistakes. They will discuss the importance of designing products for manufacturability, sourcing the best materials for your product, and finding the contract manufacturer that will enable you to quickly develop low-cost, high-quality products that satisfy customer needs.
Location: Chestnut Innovation Center, 11 Chestnut Street, Amesbury, MA
