Design for Manufacturing, by Manufacturing and Design Experts
Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Enables OEMs to Realize Greater Profit by Dramatically Reducing the Number of Re-Spins in a Typical Product Launch, Saving Time and Capital.
Effective DFM identifies and corrects the inefficiencies of a product as it moves through each of step in its manufacturing process.
Optimal DFM hinges on concurrent development of the product and its manufacturing process for maximum efficiency.
So the sooner you focus on DFM in the course of new product development and integrate it throughout the product lifecycle, the more you stand to gain.

Does Your Design Have the Average 6 IPC Violations?
Each year, we perform more than 500 comprehensive DFM assessments for our customers that yield immediate results. In those 500 assessments we see an average of 6 IPC violations per product.
We can help make sure your design doesn’t fall into this category.
Our software tools include proprietary Creation systems as well as Mentor Graphics’ Valor NPI, a tool that integrates printed circuit board (PCB) design and an extensive components library with manufacturing operations for a customized look at:
- Design for Fabrication and PCB Fab Analysis
- Assembly Visibility and Accuracy
- Design for Assembly and PCB Assembly Analysis
Creation’s Proven Approach Delivers Gains in Productivity
Creation uses a standardized model for DFM that’s also tied to NPI and sustaining engineering. We work with you to develop a DFM strategy that addresses your key manufacturing challenges and delivers a product that is:
- Compliant with regulatory needs
- Fast to market
Our services are based on a combination of software tools and expert personal assessments by our DFM specialists, design engineers, and the product engineering and manufacturing engineering teams who will be building your product in our production facilities.

For OEMs, switching your manufacturing solution is not as simple as switching your cable provider. Whether you build in-house or are using a contract manufacturer (CM), transferring a family of products to a new facility or partner can be a very complex, time-consuming, and expensive process. With so many factors to consider – from cost
Manufacturing facility design is like puzzle-solving, where managing space and operational efficiencies can pose a challenge – especially during periods of growth. Do we carve out more manufacturing space within our existing facility? Do we acquire more manufacturing space? Or do we continue to find new ways to optimize existing product flow? At Creation, the
