  • Concept development and idea generation services
  • Supply chain and vendor management
  • Quick-turn prototyping and Component Webstore to accelerate design and development timelines

DFM & Phase Gate Process

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) activities align engineering and production in the initial design phase, ensuring cost and time efficiencies, quality, and meeting customer expectations. At Spectrum, we are recognized by our customers for our strong up-front engineering support and DFM programs to prove design reliability and consistency. Having the ability to control risk probability for the end-product, provides confidence from development all the way to production.

DFM & Phase Gate Process:

  • Concept feasibility and market assessment
  • Design requirements/inputs
  • Design drawings/models
  • Tool/mold design, making, and prototyping
  • Design verification and validation
  • Production readiness
  • Commercial transfer
  • Postmarket launch & customer support
