Design for Assembly Analysis
Our DFA Analysis checks designs and BOMs for some of the most common manufacturability issues that will slow or even stop an assembly project. Manufacturability issues are not functional issues although higher risks designs can result in functional issues or even outright failures. The objective of the DFA Analysis is to catch these issues before an assembly order is even placed.
CAD or Gerber files and a BOM are analyzed and customers get a report highlighting issues and/or potential issues from our Engineering Team. The analysis will include possible fixes wherever possible and will differentiate between issues that require attention and those we recommend be addressed either in the current build or a future build.
Please note our DFA Analysis tool requires BOMs to have complete information on Quantity, References Designators, Manufacturers Part Numbers and Manufacturers Name. We also require a Centroid or Pick and Place file.
