When it comes to automotive production, every nut and bolt makes a difference — in size, function and aesthetic. This requires us to invest more time developing an initial design that ensures each piece does everything required of it, all while maintaining fit, function and strength.
With unique challenges like these, the design time for an automotive product could be ten times that of industrial products. To address this, we use the WMD Squared Documentation Method and Design for Manufacturability (DFMA) tool. These resources allow us to review each design for manufacturability, ensure correct standards are incorporated, and confirm the lifetime needs of all equipment are met.
