System: ProKon was developed as a tool for use by the design engineers and others in the earliest stages of the product development process. ProKon stands for “Production-Oriented Design”. ProKon is a system for analyzing the ease of assembly of components and parts during product development. The assessment yields constructive approaches for insuring that the final product design meets the need for ease-of-assembly. The assessment is based on a point system, which takes into account manufacturability factors that can be addressed in the product development phase. The quantified assessment of these Influencing Factors provides the engineer with the option of comparing alternative solutions during product development.
The application of ProKon allow for the evaluation of manufacturing costs while in the early stages of production design – all this without detailed knowledge of the expected assembly situation. ProKon can be used to asses newly developed production, as well as, existing products The Influencing Factors were selected such that the design engineer can make all the necessary decisions quickly and easily with his existing expertise and without additional information.
Course: This 2-day Design for Assembly course includes coverage of the theory and principles of the ProKon software. It includes laboratory problems to illustrate ProKon’s principles and use. If a candidate completes the course, they will be awarded a Certificate of Completion and will be eligible to apply for BlueCard® certification. Please contact MTM for a list of BlueCard® certification requirements.
