Design For Manufacturing – methods for improved aerospace components manufacturing

The project aims to integrate and further develop a number of methods for evaluating different aspects of manufacturability. This integration is quantified with a common metric to determine the manufacturability for a product concept, which has not previously been presented.

The expected outcome of the project is a methodology with a holistic approach that provides support for working procedures as well as tools for analysis, evaluation, visualization and decision.
