Design for eXcellence (DfX)

Besides a team of highly qualified engineers, with a permanent focus on DfX, there are several procedures and tools implemented at ESCATEC to make the whole process of DfX possible:

Design for Quality:

  • Standardised product development process
  • Product / Process FMEA
  • Design reviews

Design of Environment:

  • Eco design rules

Design for Cost:

  • Target costing
  • Total supplier management
  • Technology roadmap
  • Component engineering

Design for Test:

  • System test
  • Function test 
  • Build-In-Self test

Design for Manufacturing:

  • Design guide lines
  • Computer-aided analysis of PCB Layout
  • Computer-aided analysis of Placement – Mentor Graphics Valor MSS Process Preparation

DfX enables us to improve the design of a customer’s product at an early stage in order to prevent additional design prototyping loops. In practising DfX, ESCATEC aims to save money and time for our customer.
