Boothroyd Dewhurst will host the twenty-eighth annual International Forum on Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) on June 12-14, 2013. This year's Forum, "Engineering Value with DFMA "Unlocking Profits in Product Design," will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Providence-Warwick, R.I.
"Value analysis is a way for every organization "be it engineering-driven, financial or social in nature "to determine if the products and services it offers align with what customers truly want and are willing to pay for," said John Gilligan, president of Boothroyd Dewhurst.
"We have decided this year to re-emphasize the deep relationship that DFMA shares with Value Engineering," said Gilligan. "As the U.S. and other leading manufacturing countries compete internationally on price and performance, DFMA offers producers a powerful business approach for realizing end-to-end efficiency "one that impacts product labor content, materials, quality, manufacturing, inventory, and supply-chain delivery "leading to higher customer satisfaction and profits."
Speakers for the 2013 DFMA International Forum include representatives from AB SCIEX, Motorola Solutions, ITT Aerospace Controls, Westinghouse, Dynisco Instruments (Roper Industries) and Whirlpool.
