About
DFM & prototyping

Businesses know that a good idea is not always a viable one. Experts in each facet of medical device design and the development team must, therefore, come together to create a design for manufacturing or design for manufacturability (DFM) plan. The DFM process seeks to ensure that a product—or each of its components—meets and exceeds all requirements in terms of device performance, compliance with global regulations (U.S., EU, etc.), use of the most effective materials, cost-effectiveness, adherence to set tolerances, and validation tests.

Using prototypes at each iteration of the design phase enables hands-on testing and validation. Thus, prototypes serve as pre-production models capable of demonstrating each product feature and the benefits of the adopted manufacturing process. For the best results, the product design and manufacturing engineering teams should work hand in hand.

The DFM and Prototyping Challenge

Product designers are not familiar with the various aspects of production engineering that are influenced by product design. So if you contract with a manufacturer that does not offer sound DFM and prototyping capabilities, your production process will run into issues at later stages. Skipping DFM and prototyping can lead to such problems as high wastage, longer production time, and faulty products.

Approach & Solutions

Quasar’s dedicated team of seasoned engineers in our R&D department in Israel handles every medical device design,  ensuring it advances to the NPI stage. Armed with DFM and rapid prototyping capabilities, Quasar identified inefficiencies in production that, once addressed, can save vast resources in the long run. Making these adjustments at the NPD design stage will ensure efficiency during full-scale manufacturing.

Prototyping
Advantages of DFM & prototyping
  • Manage costs efficiently by anticipating mass-production challenges.
  • Accelerate the NPI process via seamless transitions at each stage of the product cycle,  minimizing the need for post-production redesigns.
  • Establish a supply chain strategy from the very beginning.
  • Guarantee consistent results and zero surprises at the device qualification stage.
