Successful metal fabrication job shops know that in order to maximize production time, it has to start with the design. The best way to do that is by designing parts for the way it is going to be fabricated or by DFM. This starts with a cooperative effort between the customer, the manufacturing engineer at the job shop and the operations team. When they all 3 work together, the outcome should be developing the most cost-effective production design.
