Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy and cost effective to manufacture.

Before any project is started Accel Inc.’s DFM team reviews all aspects of a manufacturing project to ensure we meet the customers desired quality and output requirements while reducing costs.  Accel’s DFM team works hard to optimize fabrication, processing, and assembly prior to production which allows potential problems to be fixed in the design phase which is the least expensive place to address them.


Below are a few examples of things the DFM team considers before we ever start a project.

functionality automation cost
delivery quality reliability
ease of assembly testability ease of service
shipping human factors styling
safety customization expandability
tools/fixtures environmental compliance regulatory compliance
