Design For Manufacturability

A necessity for “Make in India” is evolving a thriving innovative eco system building all manner of things big or small, not just large volume . This requires a whole new set of skills and knowledge to with usability, reliability and manufacturability to a demanding form factor, cost and usage constraints. The partnership will aim to assist start-ups who do not have the range of skills and expertise to access mentors, experts and suppliers who can help them translate idea to prototype and prototype to first factory run. As a pilot to the DFM Assistance scheme, start-ups and mentors will advise and assist them through this process. Learning from this pilot will be used to finalize a larger assistance facility. Assistance will include mentoring and expert advice on form factor and batch runs as well as costing and connecting with ESDM eco-system for prototype development as well as First Factory run. Financing is not yet part of the assistance scheme.
