Fast Track your Design to Manufacture to Drive Smarter Innovation

In the era of generation Y, a famed footwear company saw its growth floundering. What seemed to be a fleeting episode, went on to be a lesson for many (even today). For a two-digit scorer, growth rate at snaillike speed was a matter of concern. From rethinking branding strategies and campaigns to inspecting the supply chain management, no stone was left unturned. But what was to be discovered was beyond the scope of the stakeholder’s wildest imagination-the shoe prodigy was disturbing the…

Take the DFMPro Challenge – See how FIT your design is!

We all know that unexpected rework due to downstream manufacturability  and assembly problems is one of the biggest concern for any design engineers as it adds to unnecessary time and cost. And you feel this impact most, when these changes originate in later stages of lifecycle having exponentially higher impact on time-to-market and cost.

Whether it’s incorrect…
