Design for manufacturing is a strategic approach to manufacturing that promotes efficiency in the manufacturing process.
With this line of thought, you can greatly save on the material requirements and subsequently do away with wastage.
Furthermore, you can also achieve savings in the cost of labor by precisely defining processes.
Design for the manufacturing of PCBs begins with the Gerber files of the printed circuit board.
These files are then presented to the manufacturing team, who alongside the designers, establish the processes to realize the design.
Attention is placed on the board parts to allow for simplified processes without the sophistication of aspects.
