Design For Manufacture

Problem:

Manufacturer had identified various skill levels within their workforce.

There current product range was overly complex, had poor drawings, and often ran over budget.

Solution:

Trang was engaged to perform a design review, with the intention of simplifying manufacture costs.

Outcome:

  • Trang was able to find a 12% reduction in material without dramatically effecting structural capacities, and general appearance.
  • Many complex parts were re-designed to be manufactured from lazer cut platework.
  • Many parts were standardised throughout the product.
  • Drawings were presented in a format that suited the way the factory operated.
  • Labour requirements were reduced by at least 25%.
