The ABC’s of DfX in Electronics Manufacturing

Cheryl Tulkoff and Greg Caswell

Thursday, June 3, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT

Design for Excellence (DfX) is based on the concept that optimizing a product starting early in design is far more effective than fixing problems later. In this webinar, we’ll explain how to use the DfX concepts of Design for Reliability, Design for Manufacturability, Design for Environment, Design for Testability, etc., to not only reduce research and development costs but also improve quality and decrease time to market. Understanding DFX concepts is critical for anyone who wants to design and build robust, profitable products. We’ll also discuss a few common barriers and mistakes along with some practices you can implement right away.
