Design for manufacturing (DFM) is a critical concept that all manufacturers, ranging from wire harness manufacturers to cable assembly manufacturers, must master in order to achieve commercial success. DFM relates to designing a part of a product, a specific service, or even a particular manufacturing process with ease of manufacturability in mind—in short, DFM allows a product to be manufactured quickly without any loss in quality. DFM, or in this case design for cable assembly manufacturing, can help to ensure product quality, reduced manufacturing and delivery times, and an overall reduction in costs associated with manufacturing certain products. Manufacturers interested in exploring design for cable assembly manufacturing should make sure to keep the following points in mind.
