The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) will offer a new two-day instructor-led workshop on Design for Manufacturing and Design for Assembly. The course will provide fundamental knowledge and hands-on practice that can be tailored to fit the special needs of new product and process development, or to focus on applications for existing designs and manufacturing environment.

The course will be held October 4-5 at the Embassy Suites, Glendale, Calif. Virtual attendance will be available via live web-streaming.

"The Design for Manufacturing and Design for Assembly Workshop is one of SME's most popular courses," says Steve Sternicki, manager of instructor-led training for SME. "This is the first time SME is offering a virtual attendance option, and we're excited to make this training available to manufacturers across North America via live web streaming. SME continues to explore new ways to bring affordable and efficient instructor-led training solutions to the manufacturing industry."

The course will be led by Dan Bauer, an American Society of Mechanical Engineers certified senior GD&T professional with a Master of Science in Industrial Operations. His expertise stems from supporting more than 80 different product design and manufacturing launch programs in the past 18 years in North America, Europe and Asia.

The program is intended for all levels of design, including program managers, quality managers, design-responsible engineers, and other design and manufacturing engineering personnel.

Design for metal forming and design for surface treatment are two of the six modules offered on day one of the workshop. Day two promises four additional modules, with units such as design for machining and tolerance design for Six Sigma. Each module ends with an interactive exercise for attendees to implement their knowledge and understanding of the course's components.
