This book introduces a new process workflow for optimizing your design called Manufacturing Driven Design (MDD) and is a distinct evolution from DFM. When defining Manufacturing Driven Design, it is important to recognize that this is, foremost, an element of the design stage. Manufacturing certainly plays a critical role in this process change, and manufacturers do certainly benefit from the improved process, but it is design teams that ultimately own their overall product workflow; they are the ones who need to drive this shift. Design teams are already invested in the success of their product; they just need to be empowered to control all the factors that go into this success.
In addition, this book explores some of the factors that present challenges to an efficient DFM process. While some hurdles are internal, it is often the manufacturing processes required to make various technologies that complicate the design review process. Readers will learn some useful anecdotes and be better able to understand that the path forward is one that strengthens the relationship between designer and manufacturer.
Max Clark is the business unit manager for Siemens and, for the last 35 years, worked alongside the most talented printed circuit board design and manufacturing experts and executives the industry has to offer. Max specializes in understanding innovative needs, along with new technologies, and transforming the two into manufacturing software solutions that bring electronics products to the market. Max partners with a powerful team of leading technologists and developers to deliver the most highly regarded PCB manufacturing design validation solutions in the industry. Max is inspired daily by his wife and three daughters and enjoys spending time with his family and friends—on a hillside with a view of the Pacific Ocean, on the golf course, or simply sitting together. These are the moments Max looks forward to and remembers most.
