Design for Manufacture and Assembly is a methodology to streamline product development. It involves designing products with the manufacturing and assembly process in mind, aiming to reduce costs and improve efficiency.
DfMA is particularly useful in the modular construction industry, where speed and efficiency are critical. Designing buildings with the manufacturing and assembly process in mind can reduce the time and cost associated with traditional construction methods.
DfMA involves breaking down a product into its components and analysing each for manufacturability and ease of assembly. This analysis helps identify potential design improvements to reduce costs and improve efficiency. For example, a feature that requires multiple assembly steps may be redesigned to simplify the process and reduce assembly time.
In the modular construction industry, DfMA means designing buildings that are easy to manufacture and assemble in a factory setting. This includes designing components that can be easily transported and assembled on-site and optimising the manufacturing process to reduce waste and improve quality.
At Marathon Modular, we use DfMA principles in our design and manufacturing process to ensure that our modular buildings are of the highest quality, delivered on time, and within budget. By designing for manufacture and assembly, we can provide our clients with a cost-effective and efficient building solution that meets their unique needs.
Marathon is driven by innovation to create and rapidly evolve, providing fast, quality and efficient building practices such as DfMA. For over 15 years, we have delivered quality projects whilst optimising our building systems to provide a simpler, more effective project delivery process.
Marathon Modular is a Prequalified DfMA Manufacturer for SINSW.
