Design for Manufacturability (DFM)

As a Contract Manufacturer, we are not only approached with new products and new designs, we also partner with companies that need us to support legacy or redesigned products.  Collaborative discussions attribute to better manufacturing process efficiency, superior quality, and a quicker time to market.

Design for Procurement (DFP)

SMC is focused on offering an array of value added services that best support our customers.  The best way to effectively drive out cost is to start early in the design phase where SMC will evaluate every aspect of the design.  SMC Engineers enjoy doing a deep dive into material cost, material composition, and ask appropriate questions to refrain from over engineering products.

  • Component Substitution
  • Manufacturers E.O.L. Management
