Abstract

This case study shows how the effect of implementation of the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) in product development process. Pressure vessel was selected as the example in this case study. The pressure vessel design was obtained from one of the oil and gas company in Malaysia. Information gathering and data collection were conducted by interview and observation. Information such as design and component development time was analyzed and modeled to ensure the effect of implementation of this approach to product development cycle and design efficiencies. The method used for this case study is the Boothroyd and Dewhurst method. Using this method, the existing design of the pressure vessel was modified by incorporating the design for manufacture and assembly requirements. The approach enables a shorter product development cycle time through reduction in manufacturing and assembly time. Apart from that, the overall cost of the pressure vessel was reduced. The implementation of this approach has improved the company's performance and return of investment.
