DFM reviews focus on reducing production time and costs while ensuring products meet requirements, regulation, and quality standards.
Here are some questions your can ask of assembly and installation team your manufacturing suppliers and production teams during DFM reviews
DFM reviews can be limiting as they often exclude input from downstream teams such as those handling the product’s assembly and installation orders. Discussions with these teams can be abstract as they occur before the product is created. Traditionally using PDF documents to relay specs and instructions have been as good as it gets, making the decision process about the product assembly harder and more prone to quality issues.

Good product designs also incorporate feedback on the packing and delivery of the product. The final packing has to be robust including transportation details such as stresses like vibrations and even loading and unloading instructions.
Here are some questions you can ask your logistics, packaging and distribution teams.
Onshape is a more collaborative and inclusive design platform that enables you to have more robust DFM reviews. With Onshape, you can securely share view-only CAD models and drawings with manufacturers, enabling you to host real-time DFM reviews with multiple users simultaneously. Onshape provides communication and collaboration capabilities, such as: follow mode and task assignments, with tools that allow anyone who is a part of the DRM process to ask questions through comments, and markups.
Built for the cloud, Onshape’s unique architecture enables multiple users to concurrently communicate and collaborate on the same model, at the same time. No matter how dispersed your design and manufacturing teams are, Onshape provides the best tools to enable more robust DFM reviews earlier in the development cycle.
