Design Engineer & Management Consultant
“Taoist DFM” as per the author of www.taoistdfm.com , Er K S R
"I see all changes in PRODUCTS as manifestations of the dynamic interplay between polar opposites ,DESIGN & MANUFACTURABILITY and I have come to believe that in any pair of opposites D and M constitutes a polar relationship where each of the two poles D & M is dynamically locked in each other through Taoist DFM".
"Design Thinking", According to Tim Brown – the Executive Chair of IDEO , "is a human centred approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology ,and the requirements for business success”
The Author of "Taoist Design for Manufacturability" list more than 800 brief rules & guideline on covering all Criteria and Systems. Each and every operation to manufacturing design the product at best lower cost to Manufacturability with quality, service, and reliability. . He is having very good experience in design and consulting in various field like Machinery, product design, Re-designing the product according to customer or the client specification.
‘Tao of DFM ‘for the
World of Design Engineers & Entrepreneurs
Er K S R is mentored by Dr David M Anderson of www.design4manufacturability.com of USA. Er K S R has published his first DFM Handbook titled as ‘Taoist Directions for Design & Development’ -sponsored by National Design & Research Forum -NDRF-Bangalore during August 2014 which was released by Hon. Deve Gowda, the former PM of India .The DFM was christened as Tao of DFM ( Taoist DFM). This book is born out of the ‘out-of-box’ & cross-functional thinking of this Author and is an analogy between Taoism & DFM just like Dr Fritjof Capra equated Taoism and Physics in his popular book titled as ‘The Tao of Physics ‘.
Both Dr David M Anderson & Dr Fritj of Capra have read this author’s first DFM Handbook and appreciated the basic concepts under this Taoist DFM in writing.
The second DFM Handbook is a Practice Book on implementing Taoist DFM titled as ‘Manufacturability Function Deployment ‘MFD and released at Madras Management Association during March 2017 by Dr B V A Rao an authority on Vibrations & former HOD of IITM -who has developed software for Bearing Analysis from his individual capacity.
You can find that the complex Philosophy of DFM is scientifically bifurcated into Eight Criterions like Best Cost/Best Quality / Best Reliability/Best Compliance to Regulations -Sustainability / Best Safety/ Best time-to-Market/ Best Function -Style & Best Satisfaction to Customers as well as Promoters - Innovators by developing a responsible Concurrent Engineering Team of Domain Experts covering the above Domains .
We recommend simple Gap-Analysis through proper Brainstorming for adherence to Ten Commandments & Ten Basic Enforcements under “Taoist DFM’ ( Total Twenty Parameters ) as Rules /Guidelines to act as WHATS under the QFD pattern .The outputs of the analysis of WHATS- the First Home under MFD - are taken as inputs for the Second Home of HOWS under this MFD. The CET has to do separately FMEA for Design as well as Process as a mandatory for all operations under all Eight Criterions of Taoist DFM operation-wise .Built in inputs for FMEA under the Second Home under MFD will ensure that all Cost Centres will be covered for combined FMEA to rate the design of the whole Equipment by the CET so as to present it to the Board for approval.
The Knowledge base of this Simplest DFM is transparently posted via PPTs as well as the author’s video orations which are open to people visiting this website www.dfmsolutionsbyre-design.com
For really interested individuals and organizations on DFM this Author’s first DFM Handbook as an e-book can be emailed FREE of cost once they visit and send messages from the author’s exclusive book site www.dfmhandbook.com and confirming interest on ‘Taoist DFM ‘.
The Second DFM Handbook titled ‘Manufacturability Function Deployment ‘- MFD – in e-formats along with instruction manual are available FOR SALE only through the response for the commitment to practice Taoist DFM @ your end.
A FREE GUIDE book in e-format on ‘DESIGN THINKING can be shared The popular ‘Design Thinking ‘ methodology for shortlisting on Ideas or Design for Start-ups as well .This will help both Design Engineering Professionals as well as Entrepreneurs/Intrapreneurs under SME
The APEX Team heading the CET will be a Three Member Team of Captains as follows:
Group Captain – Head of QMS of the Unit /First Captain -Head of Design of the unit. / Second Captain – Head of Manufacturing of the Unit.
The systematic process sequence will ensure that all the Eight Manufacturability Systems (covering all Cost Centres) listed under Procurement, Manufacture, Assembly, Testing, Packing -Shipping, Supply -Delivery-Service -Maintenance & Repair covering entire spectrum of Manufacturing/ Business are covered by default.
Our TEAM from ‘Engineers InnoVentures ‘ can train the Clients for Taoist DFM from Industries and institutions on the formation & establishment of CET and provide supporting guidelines on site or on -line under mutually acceptable Terms & Conditions
THE MAIN BACK-BONE FOR THE WHOLE EXERSICES WILL BE DEVELOPING PROCESS SHEETS ALONG WITH QUALITY PLANS AND FMEA -BOTH DESIGN & PROCESS AND INTENSIVE BRAIN STORMING AND RECORDING OF THE OUTPUTS FOR COMPLIANCE MATCHING WITH OF TDFM. REGULATIONS SPECIFIC TO THE PROJECT /PRODUCT
We ensure Reliable Design of Manufacturable & Maintainable Engineering Products /Equipment for Automotive /Agricultural/ Rapid Development of Products & Equipment supported by our Responsive Taoist DFM!
For ‘ Engineers InnoVentures ‘, DESIGN and IDEA mean the same when EIV deals with any Project Design or Business Idea !
Mission of EIV is to guide / take an IDEA or DESIGN of any individual or Organization to GROWTH through Simple ,Reliable Steps by Creating a Responsive DFM Platform for assured PERFORMANCE through a Cohesive/Talented CET & Internet of Things -IoT- of today & tomorrow!
