Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Review Process

Cascade Systems Technology performs Design for Manufacturing (DFM) reviews for each of our customers’ products. These reviews help to prevent difficulties in the manufacturing process, improves quality, and reduces costs of the finished product.

Gerber and Component Review

During the Gerber and component reviews, CST identifies potential design change options, which can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Reduce complexity
  • Make it easier to manufacture
  • Reduce BOM cost
  • Reduce process costs
  • Shorten production cycle time
  • Eliminate reliability and quality issues

Technical Review

As board designs get denser and more complex, our technical reviews become more comprehensive and in depth. The Technical review includes, but is not limited, to the following actions:

  • Check for missing files, layers, and features like fiducials
  • Review for conflicting information
  • Extract PCB details necessary to quote fixtures and tooling

Even though we no longer do complete board designs from scratch, we can help improve your existing design, optimize its manufacturing process, and reduce your design-related headaches.
