DFMA Standard Requirements
- Do you take a step back and take a bigger picture perspective that doesnt just look at the cost of the assembly or piece parts, but instead answers, what is the impact on the system?
- Why do you suppose so many firms (about a third of the survey respondents) still dont track overhead costs related to product development, and what advice do you have for them?
- Must the part be separate from all other parts already assembled because otherwise necessary assembly or disassembly of the separate parts would be impossible?
- When did your company first begin identifying a need to reduce unnecessary product development costs, and what steps did it take?
- If the materials hardenability properties must be taken into consideration, are the most appropriate joint geometry utilised?
- Are the possibilities to use different processing methods for the same construction or multi-processing methods considered?
- Which categories contribute to product development costs that could be avoided by analyzing product designs with DFMA?
- For which categories has your company measured savings in overhead costs related to DFA part count reduction?
- Design for Manufacturing - how does it fit with Design for Function, Design for Assembly and Design for Cost?
- Is the CAD-geometry of the workpiece saved in the DXF-format (or any other suitable) for CAD/CAM-integration?

Statistics according to Glassdoor and Indeed tell these positions receive an average basic pay of $125,000. Daily rates of basic pay are computed by dividing an employee's annual pay by 260 days. The daily salary is then derived by dividing the annual salary of $125,000 by 260 days = a daily rate of $480.
- Top management consulting firms start at $2,000 a day, with rates typically charged up to 40 hours per week.
For a fraction of this the Self-Assessment will make you a DFMA domain authority.
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role… In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'
For more than twenty years, The Art of Service's Self-Assessments empower people who can do just that - whether their title is marketer, entrepreneur, manager, salesperson, consultant, business process manager, executive assistant, IT Manager, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are people who watch the process as it happens, and ask the right questions to make the process work better.
