One of the pillars of MFG’s value proposition to customers is providing engineering support as a value-added service. That support comes from the MFG Design Center located in Portland OR.
The Design Center engineers have specific expertise in Design For Manufacturability and Assembly (DFMA). It is an integrated and fully focused part of the MFG organization and provides support for both custom and proprietary products. For new product designs or design revision/updates the group can provide detailed analysis and propose recommendations that can improve manufacturability to help lower cost. Through “online meetings” customers and MFG teammates collaborate to optimize designs for manufacturability, cost, quality and overall timing reduction.
Under the leadership of Director John Fernandes, the Design Center recently relocated to new office space and brought on additional engineering talent to deepen their capability.
