CO-DESIGN

Design with us!

TFM GROUP IS FIRST OF ALL A TECHNOLOGICAL AND PROJECT PARTNER

We are experts in the mechanical and mechatronic components and from the first design phases we are able to cooperate by identifying the most suitable materials and the by engineering the component in order to satisfy the most innovative requests and to optimize the costs.

    PHASE 1

    DEFINITION OF THE CUSTOMER REQUEST

    First analysis of the project. Preliminary study on the materialsand on thefunctional of the component.

    PHASE 2

    CO-ENGINEERING

    In this phase TFM supports the customer project team and can count on the collaboration of a multidisciplinary team where each member, by leveraging in acquired skills and knowledge can propose improvements/suggestions to enhance the component.

    Focus: Comprehension of the technical-functional customer’s needs and joint analysis to identify all the possible improvements and the subsequent industrial optimization.

    PHASE 3

    PROTOTYPES PRODUCTION

    This production is necessary to concretely check the correctness of decisions taken during the previous phases and to allow the customer to do a first field check of the manufactured components

    PHASE 4

    SUPPORT DURING THE DEVELOPMENT PHASE

    The test phase on prototypes allows, by continuous feedback on field results, to modify, if necessary, the specifications previously defined and to improve the component until its final definition.

    Focus: bringing the project to a higher definition and perfection level in terms of efficiencyand efficacy. The feedbacks are useful to do all the necessary changes to full satisfy the technical-functional requirements and to optimize the component cost.

    PHASE 5

    PPAP (PRODUCTION PART APPROVAL PROCESS)

    First mass production approach. Higher quantity production samples (defined by the Customer) characterized by so called “mass production conditions”. Mass production conditions mean that all those conditions (materials/machinery/methods) must be respected during the manufacturing process to guarantee the product suitability.

    In this phase the materials/machinery/methods are freezed and they will be the only valid ones for the mass production.

    PHASE 6

    MASS PRODUCTION

    • Conclusion of the project
    • PPAP samples approval
    • Actual start of the production and the supply according to the agreement
