Most products designs need to be redesigned before they can be assembled. In the current market, companies have to introduce new products at the right moment and against the market price. The goal of this method is to create new products rst time right designs. Three assembly aspects are important to know during the design process: product architecture, joining and part design.Design with Assembly is a new approach which consists of seven successive steps. The assembly aspects are taken in account from the beginning to the end of the design process.
