“taoistdfm ‘ is the brainchild of ‘Engineers InnoVentures.an Industrial Consultancy firm promoted by Er Ramalingam K S
Serving the needs of DFM internationally and
Serving the needs of Industries /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’ and the second DFM Handbook is a Practice Book on implementing Taoist DFM titled as ‘Manufacturability Function Deployment' .
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 .
Under this Taoist DFM , DFM undergoes a paradigm shift to QMS as a regulatory function from Design Function and the Division of Process Engineering merged with Design Division and the combined entity not only be delivering Complete Drawings but also develop a practical Operation Process sheets for each Cost Centre along with Quality Plans Certified by the QMS – ensuring a progressive flow for ‘Design For Manufacturability ‘-DFM .
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 ‘.
A FREE GUIDE book in e-format on ‘DESIGN THINKING can be shared based on 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 TAO OF DFM. 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!
