Design for Manufacturing and Assembly. Anywhere.

Extend delivery of the built environment far beyond what we have encountered so far.

Take DfMA with you

Designers, Makers, Builders can utilize the economics of information goods and online networks to form advantageous business models that combine, ideas, online computing, and DfMA (Design for Manufacturing & Assembly) with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud.

Human + Computing + Process

A superior process coupled with a modest investment in computing resources can enable everyone involved in the delivery of the built environment to outperform relative to results derived from inferior processes supported by the technology we have already encountered.

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is an exceptional process that has been united with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by people wanting to compete with computers rather than against them to realize scope & quality that is greater than the resources expended. Together, DfMA and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud enables everyone to create novel business models that produce far more than they consume by optioning the economics of information goods and online networks.


Connecting, capturing, and reusing design intelligence with material and assembly intelligence......


Design for manufacturing implies designing for the ease of manufacture of a product's components parts.


Design for assembly aim to reduce your product assembly cost and minimizing the number of assembly operations

DfMA Benefits

DfMA is about taking a holistic view of a building to determine the best way of making it. Its goal is the efficient production of a high-quality, cost-effective facility that, despite the mass production of certain processes, still provides the variety the client desires.

More predictable installation

A DfMA approach looks to eliminate components, because more parts means greater potential for assembly problems. It also requires tolerances among various trades to be agreed upon in the early design stage. Therefore, when components arrive at the job site, they all interface correctly.

Higher quality components

Because much of the project assembly is done in a clean factory environment, the end product can be of higher quality than what is produced onsite. Also, there is opportunity for better quality materials which, as a piece part might be more expensive, but costs are saved overall through less construction time and reduced lifetime maintenance.

Improved worksite safety

This prefabrication focus means that fewer trades are required onsite, the site aspects are better illustrated and the workspace is more predictable, which leads to improvements in both safety and logistics.

Building with our customers, hear it from them

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud gives unprecedented access to powerful 3D tools that aren’t just able to provide an image but provide real information so that you can change the geometry actively on a tablet or any device.
