Working with a customer, Paul Barck (right) and John Ruggieri (center) perform a DFM exercise for an instrument in development.
In a recent conversation with Orthopedic Design & Technology, Paul Barck, president and CEO of Seabrook International, a contract manufacturing firm located in Seabrook, NH, and John Ruggieri, director of engineering, discussed the problems they often encounter in product designs today and how early attention to design for manufacturability (DFM) can offer savings in both time and money. Paul Barck: While the practice is becoming more common, we continue to push for earlier involvement with DFM exercises. Barck: In some new instrument programs, we (both design and manufacturing) have been forced to change specifications and rework production quantities of parts as a result of gaps between part specifications and manufacturing-related capabilities. In a well-managed DFM exercise, component function, use and application should be discussed. Barck: The primary focus of design engineering is typically functionality and not on manufacturing constraints. Barck: Our customers are always looking for shorter lead times to help with their tighter program timelines. Barck: Knowing what geometries and features are easily generated without requiring costly manufacturing processes like complex 3-D profiling or multi-piece construction can greatly reduce the cost of the parts. Barck: We worked on a project with a customer whose cost target of a new product was 50% of its predecessor with equivalent functionality. Barck: There are widely varying levels of experience both in design/development and manufacturing.
