At the 2013 International Forum on Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA), Boothroyd Dewhurst announced the release of its DFA Product Simplification software, Version 10. The Design for Assembly software has an improved user interface for speed and ease of use, and helps manufacturers develop more streamlined and profitable products.

DFA Product Simplification allows engineers to scrutinize parts and assemblies for structural efficiency, guiding them toward the creation of single, multifunctional components with significantly improved performance-to-cost ratios. The resulting elegant, highly economical products enable companies to better reach their Lean and Value Engineering goals by increasing manufacturing throughput and reducing the organizational footprint products make in their journey from design workstation to factory floor—and on to the customer.
