11 Principles and Guidelines in Design for Manufacturing and Assembly

Here are 11 Principles and Guidelines in Design for Manufacturing and Assembly:

1. Minimize number of components. Assembly costs are reduced. The final product is more reliable because there are fewer connections. Disassembly for maintenance and field service is easier. Reduced part count usually means automation is easier to implement.…

Engineers have it tough

Engineers have a tough gig, often working in fast paced, competitive environments with tight deadlines. 

There is a reason why the word lean was introduced by the Toyota manufacturing sector - they wanted to trim all the fat. Get rid of any unnecessary steps or actions within their assembly line. 

I see this as a good metaphor for how engineers should work. For example would we derive Hooke's law every time we wanted to do some spring calcs? Or…

Engineering: More "Creative" Than We Previously Thought

Recently, Pamela Kan challenges us to understand what "creativity" really encompasses. She indicates that she has never considered herself a "creative" person, despite her many acts of innovation and creation throughout her personal and professional pursuits. Perhaps Kan, as she suggests, lacks artistic abilities, but who is to say that this indicates she has no true creative…

Optimize your designs with the innovation BOM

Product development is never as easy as going from “What's the market solution” to “what's the engineering design”  - there are many decisions in the middle that need to be made around the general design, tech requirements, and main components. (For example - - How’s the chassis going to come together, what’s the power supply, how is it going to communicate?)

You probably use Excel for this. At many companies, or on startup teams, you might even find yourselves sitting around in a…

Should a new component revision trigger a new assembly revision?

At Arena, we work with a lot of high-tech electrical-hardware engineers and OEMs. In our thousands of conversations with prospects and customers, here is one of the most common questions we get - - if you revise a component used in your designs, or swap it out for a totally different component, how far up does that revision need to go?

This is sort of a tricky question to answer with some major…

What's better? A formal or an informal change process?

There's a lot of give and take when it comes to setting up a change process, and a lot of factors that determine if your process should be highly formalized, or loosely managed.

A loose change process, where individual engineers have the discretion to either expedite change requests or make immediate revisions, exposes your product to unintended consequences - - including costly scrap and rework at best and field failures at worst. But excessive review slows down the iterative process…
