Design For Manufacturing and Assembly

Design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) has become an integral part of our design process.  Our consultants have in-depth experience with the manufacturing processes used for the commercialization of orthopedic implant and instruments.  We know the capabilities, strengths, weaknesses, and cost implications for each, and we can apply engineering economics to determine the most cost-effective processes.

Vendor Sourcing and Selection

JCI consultants can assist clients with vendor sourcing and selection for components, subassemblies, and complete products.  Our consultants will study the requirements for each product and determine the best fit based on likely processes, materials, costs, and manufacturing locations.  Whether you have a preferred vendor and would like help transferring a design or require a new manufacturer or manufacturing processes, we can make it happen.

Cost Reduction

The cost reduction is an on-going process.  Obtaining savings through:

  1. lower cost manufacturing processes and materials
