The PA biosynthesis inhibitors DFMA
and MGBG reduced the seedless berry fresh weight induced by GA3 + BA at 11 DAB (Table I).
The 18 x 16 DFMA
matrix developed in this research gives the possibility to compare the modularization and standardization of two alternative constructions from the DFMA
point of view.
The costs were influenced in three aspects; the first is the acquisition of raw material, in which the DFMA
allowed a reduction of 7%.
Students have to select a product that has between 15 and 30 components and then use DFMA
to come up with modified designs.
workshops are a brainstorming activity, generating numerous ideas that ultimately may or may not be incorporated.
We evaluated a number of cost-estimating packages over an 18-month period and decided to expand our use of Boothroyd Dewhurst DFMA
software," said Plug Power advanced manufacturing engineering manager Joe Mueller.
also provides a number of design guidelines that can simplify product manufacture and decrease the time and costs involved.
Here, customers can drop off products that are in the development stage and allow RB Royal engineers and technicians to provide ideas for improvement that may include a more robust design, reduction of components, longer life cycles, better space utilization, DFMA
, leak path avoidance, safety enhancements, ease of maintenance improvements and prototype development.
is a systematic procedure that allows companies to understand and manage product costs from the earliest stages of the product's development.
Adhering to the principles of DFMA
and DFS, fastening and joining methods must deliver assembly efficiencies, ensure end-product integrity, and provide access to components when necessary.
lowers the complexity of products through parts reduction-elimination or consolidation-and enables manufacturers to quantify assembly times and costs.
