Summary:
This thesis presents a methodology of Comparative Analysis of different Design for Assembly (DFA) Methods. Three DFA methods, Boothroyd's Design for Assembly, Design for Assembly Guidelines and Value Analysis are compared. A "Select DFA Software," is developed using Turbo C++, which would enable a product designer to make a comparative analysis of different DFA methods from which the designer can chose from. In using the Software the designer is not required to know in detail the different DFA methods. Responses to, easy to understand factors that affect the selection of a DFA method enables the designer to use the Software meaningfully. Two case studies are conducted for application of the DFA Software and the three different DFA methods.
