CIVIQ was working feverishly to keep up with the demand for their LinkNYC products but they were not meeting their cost targets and were anxious to reduce costs as soon as possible. Ideaz conducted a thorough design for manufacturing (DFMA) exercise to bring costs down and profits up.
When the Ideaz workstations had cooled off, our team optimized and reduced the number of parts. We utilized new manufacturing processes, focused on ease of manufacturing, installation, service, and durability. This DFMA process netted CIVIQ major savings on tooling, machined parts, and complex installation.
