Assembly Process Planning

WHAT IS ASSEMBLY PROCESS PLANNING?

Process planning is concerned with determining the sequence of individual manufacturing operations needed to produce a given part or product. Process planning translates design information into the process steps and instructions to efficiently and effectively manufacture products.

BENEFITS OF ASSEMBLY PROCESS PLANNING

  • Design the manufacturing assembly process while the product is still in the engineering department, gaining a head start in planning for tools, fixtures and human interaction.
  • Validate the manufacturability of your product in order to avoid surprises and delays.
  • Optimize your overall assembly process in order to speed manufacturing and reduce costs – even provide feedback to engineering in “design for manufacturability” (DFM).

Tools from Lattice Technology enable you to optimize your assembly process by creating a virtual assembly model for planning your manufacturing processes, while the product is still in design.
