The Design for Manufacturability/Assembly Checklists provide DFM/A guidelines to address during the development of a new product. The Checklists provide detailed DFM/A guidelines that cover assembly, boards, machining, sheetmetal and injection molding. The checklists are provided in the form of an Excel template so that they can easily be modified to incorporate a company's guidelines related to its unique items, materials an processes

The Checklists provide a structure and a starting point that will save an organization many hours in developing its own guidelines and checklists. The format allows the Checklists to be used online for rating, used via the web, or printed and manually completed.

The license fee is $500 per business unit.
