The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Design for manufacturability specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Design for manufacturability Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 927 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Design for manufacturability improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 927 standard requirements:
- Impact on the environment. Completely sustainable practices do not deplete or degrade the environment. Does the design consider recycling, and using sustainable materials and manufacturing methods?
- Do you take a step back and take a bigger picture perspective that doesnt just look at the cost of the assembly or piece parts, but instead answers, what is the impact on the system?
- Why do you suppose so many firms (about a third of the survey respondents) still dont track overhead costs related to product development, and what advice do you have for them?
- Must the part be separate from all other parts already assembled because otherwise necessary assembly or disassembly of the separate parts would be impossible?
- How can you use the visualization power offered by computer graphics and by computer-controlled rapid prototyping for the design of geometrical sculptures?
- Have the critical manufacturing processes that affect the key characteristics been identified and their capability to meet design tolerances determined?
- How are advanced techniques such as Six Sigma, Design of Experiments, Design to Cost, Design for Manufacturability integrated into your operations?
- In the case of an ATD or ACTD, what MRL would be sufficient for you or an OEM using your technology to commit to it in a product baseline design?
- Which concepts derive the greatest product improvements as a result of simplification of the product by reducing the number of separate parts?
- Have required investments for technology development, to mature design and manufacturing related technologies, been identified and funded?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
- The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Design for manufacturability book in PDF containing 927 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

- Quality Management Plan: What changes can you make that will result in improvement?
- Stakeholder Management Plan: Have external dependencies been captured in the schedule?
- Activity Duration Estimates: How difficult will it be to complete specific activities on this Design for manufacturability project?
- Procurement Audit: Did additional works amount to no more than 50% of the initial contract?
- Risk Audit: Estimated size of product in number of programs, files, transactions?
- Human Resource Management Plan: Who are the people that make up the company and whom create the success that the company enjoys as a whole?
- Planning Process Group: To what extent do the intervention objectives and strategies of the Design for manufacturability project respond to the organizations plans?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Design for manufacturability projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
- Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
- Integrate recent advances in Design for manufacturability and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Design for manufacturability investments work better.
This Design for manufacturability All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
