This week on Voices in Validation we will be covering the essentials of designing for manufacturability.
Roberta Goode provides an overview of the details necesaary in DFM, breaking it down to an 8-step process inlcuding:
- Why is Designing for Manufacturability important for medical device manufacturers?
- Does standardization of materials help shorten the product development cycle?
- What’s the next step after determining the practical part count?
- What is Poka-Yoke?
- and points to be considered when scaling up manufacturing.
