Expanded use of Design for Manufacture & Assembly software will help practices in product cost analysis

Boothroyd Dewhurst : 26 September, 2006  (Company News)
Boothroyd Dewhurst, Inc., developers of Design for Manufacture and Assembly software, today announced that Plug Power Inc., headquartered in Latham, N.Y., has purchased a corporate license for DFMA software.
Boothroyd Dewhurst, Inc., developers of Design for Manufacture and Assembly software, today announced that Plug Power Inc., headquartered in Latham, N.Y., has purchased a corporate license for DFMA software.

DFMA software helps engineering supply chains identify the major cost drivers associated with manufacturing and assembling parts and supports the development of innovative designs that are economical to produce. Plug Power, a leader in providing clean, reliable on-site energy, will use the software to improve the manufacturability of its fuel cell products and to obtain estimates of product costs early in the design cycle.

Joe Mueller, Advanced Manufacturing Engineer for Plug Power Inc., views costing data while designing a component for one of the company's fuel cell products. Plug Power will use DFMA software from Boothroyd Dewhurst to improve the manufacturability of its products and to obtain estimates of product costs early in the design cycle.

We evaluated a number of cost-estimating packages over an 18-month period and decided to expand our use of Boothroyd Dewhurst DFMA software, says Joe Mueller, Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Manager for Plug Power. We expect that implementing a standardized DFMA process across the company will help our engineering team reduce product part counts and manufacturing assembly time and provide us with a cost-estimating reference tool during negotiations with our suppliers.

Plug Power presently uses DFMA software for its GenCore and GenSys product line.
