College Park, MD – March 22, 2010 – DfR Solutions is very proud to announce the return of the Design for Excellence (DfX) seminar of courses which will be presented in association with Ops A La Carte and Value Engrafting the week of April 19-23, 2010, in San Jose, California. This one-of-a-kind collaborative effort will provide designers, reliability personnel, and engineering management with tools for incorporating Design for Excellence into the product development process.
Design for Excellence (DfX) is based upon the premise that getting product design right – the first time – is far less expensive than finding failure later in product development or at the customer. The courses will specifically highlight how utilizing the DfX concepts of Design for Reliability, Design for Manufacturability, Design for Environment, Design for Testability, etc., will not only reduce research and development costs, but will also decrease time to market and allow companies to confidently issue warranty coverage. Ultimately, Design for Excellence will increase customer satisfaction, market share, and long term profits.
“The Design for Excellence seminar of courses is critical for engineers and management who wish to learn best practices regarding product design,” said Dr. Craig Hillman, CEO and Managing Partner of DfR Solutions. “These practices need to be adjusted for different manufacturing processes, suppliers, use environments, and reliability expectations, and the DfX courses will demonstrate how to do just that.”
