PCB Design best practices: Manufacturability Verification or Design for Manufacturing Analysis – blog by Stephen Chavez

Design for manufacturing (DFM) analysis is manufacturability verification within the design process. It incorporates manufacturing constraints/guidelines that are used to check a design for potential downstream manufacturing issues upstream in the overall process to enable the highest potential for success in manufacturing regarding efficiency and optimization within the manufacturing flow.By collaborating with the DFM experts in your manufacturing supply chain, you can shift left the manufacturing-process-constraint rules to your design and NPI operations.
