A DFM egy fejlesztési gyakorlat, mely a gyárthatóságra helyezik a hangsúlyt a termékfejlesztés teljes folyamatán. A sikeres DFM a termék minőség feláldozása nélkül képes alacsonyabb gyártási költségeket eredményezni. DFM proaktívan tervezi meg  a termékeket úgy, hogy

  • minden egyes gyártási funkciót optimalizál (előállítást, összeszerelést, tesztelést, beszerzést, kiszállítást, szolgáltatást és  javítást egyaránt)
  • biztosítja a legjobb költséget, minőséget, megbízhatóságot, törvényi megfelelőséget, biztonságot és vevői elégedettséget.

Konkurens tervezés az a gyakorlat, mely lehetővé teszi a termékek és gyártási folyamatok egyidejű fejlesztését. Amennyiben léteznek a folyamatok.

DFM is the process of proactively designing products to (1) optimize all the manufacturing functions: fabrication, assembly, test, procurement, shipping, delivery, service, and repair, and (2) assure the best cost, quality, reliability, regulatory compliance, safety, time-to-market, and customer satisfaction. Concurrent Engineering is the practice of concurrently developing products and their manufacturing processes. If existing processes are to be utilized, then the product must be design for these processes. If new processes are to be utilized, then the product and the process must be developed concurrently. Design for Manufacturability and Concurrent Engineering are proven design methodologies that work for any size company. Early consideration of manufacturing issues shortens product development time, minimizes development cost, and ensures a smooth transition into production for quick time to market.

Quality can be designed in with optimal part selection and proper integration of parts, for minimum interaction problems. By considering the cumulative effect of part quality on product quality, designers are encouraged to carefully specify part quality.

Design for Manufacturability can reduce many costs, since products can be quickly assembled from fewer parts. Thus, products are easier to build and assemble, in less time, with better quality. Parts are designed for ease of fabrication and commonality with other designs. DFM encourages standardization of parts, maximum use of purchased parts, modular design, and standard design features. Designers will save time and money by not having to "re-invent the wheel." The result is a broader product line that is responsive to customer needs.

Companies that have applied DFM have realized substantial benefits. Costs and time-to-market are often cut in half with significant improvements in quality, reliability, serviceability, product line breadth, delivery, customer acceptance and, in general, competitive posture.
