Design for Manufacture
Design for Manufacture (DFM) has been around for many years, and is often referred to as value analysis or cost reduction systems. The general principle involves placing conditions on suppliers that guarantee a reduction in selling price, year on year, over the term of the contract.
The supplier can achieve this in two ways:
• Reduce manufacturing costs,
• Introduce design changes in the product, with the approval of the customer
By engaging with our customers, and ensuring a two-way conversation, GW Martin has been employing this methodology for many years now.
By working together with our customers to reduce costs in this way we have formed a true partnership maintaining a highly competitive service.
We have the in-house capability to take your design drawings and ensure they represent the most cost-effective and viable solution to manufacturing your component.
