Design for Manufacture and Assembly

Curtins podium talk



A breakfast seminar on the potential and future of Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for the construction industry. Key speakers will address the importance of a design approach that focuses on the ease of manufacture and efficiency of assembly. 

DfMA is the combination of two methodologies; Design for Manufacture, which focuses on how to design the parts that make a product specifically for ease of manufacture, and Design for Assembly, which is the design of the product for ease of assembly. By simplifying the design of a product it is possible to manufacture and assemble it more efficiently, in the minimum time and at a lower cost.

Ken Shuttleworth, founding director at Make Architects

Neil Brearley, founding director at Cast real estate and construction consultantcy

Frven Lim,  director of DP Architects, London
