October 1, 2008 -- The best design is worthless if you canít manufacture it. To be confident regarding manufacturability, itís important to know manufacturingís capabilities and limitations. There are organizations that work day and night to create guidelines and standards to make designs optimum for manufacturing.

These guidelines/standards will continue to change as capabilities, technologies, and processes improve and as product and manufacturing strategies evolve. CAM/CAD design guidelines incorporate all three major areas denoted by well-known terms: design for manufacturing, design for assembly, and design for testing. This article discusses basic CAM/CAD design guidelines used in todayís industry.
