BDCI set up a new company called Thinksmaker, that specialized in DFMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly).
BDCI need a companion who can solve the problems during the manufacturing process in advance while keeping the satisfied design quality. We also wanted the inside of products to have aesthetic quality even with the complicated internal parts.
The meaning of applying DFMA is to find out the inefficient situations in a quantifiable way and solve the problems in advance, In other words, it is the Lean manufacturing method, that today’s industry wants.
DFMA is for manufacturing and design for assembly. Thinksmaker is performing two kinds of design.
One is designed for ease of manufacturing parts for the product, and the other kind is designed for ease of assembly.
At the same time, they are proceeding the basic studies to reduce the technical engineering problems, manufacturing and assembly costs and to simplify product structures.
Thinksmaker take part of the full management after design mock-up process, which is from production to assembly. This means BDCI is more capable of designing higher level of products with technical background.
