what are the 6 component (feature) level DFA principals?
- PhilomelLv 72 months ago
Minimise the number of components: Thereby reducing assembly and ordering costs, reducing work-in-process, and simplifying automation.
Design for ease of part-fabrication: The geometry of parts is simplified and unnecessary features are avoided.

Here's what we use as our 'Design for Assembly Principles:'
Minimize part count
Design parts with self-locating features
Design parts with self-fastening features
Minimize reorientation of parts during assembly
Design parts for retrieval, handling, & insertion
Emphasize ‘Top-Down’ assemblies
Standardize parts...minimum use of fasteners.
Encourage modular design
Design for a base part to locate other components
Design for component symmetry for insertion
