Managing DFM Validation for PCB Fabrication Processes
On-demand Web Seminar
Design for Manufacture (DFM) is an essential stage in the NPI process. Using Valor NPI to perform DFM analysis during the design flow eliminates costly and time consuming problems experienced during PCB fabrication. Using DFM rules based on the manufacturer capabilities and process constraints forms part of the Lean New Product Introduction process model.
During this web seminar the following will be discussed:
- Effective DFM analysis in the NPI flow.
- Left-shift of DFM in the design process.
- Examples and impact of fabrication DFM on revision spins, fabrication yield and fast volume ramp-up.
What You Will Learn
- Best practice implementation of DFM for fabrication
- Executing DFM to achieve Lean NPI
