This article emphasizes how to design a joint or conduct a joining process so that components can be produced most efficiently and without defects. The joining processes include mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, welding, brazing, and soldering. The article discusses the selection and application of good design practices based on the understanding of process-related manufacturing aspects such as accessibility, quality, productivity, and overall manufacturing cost. It provides several examples of selected parts and joining processes to illustrate or highlight the advantages of a specific design practice in improving manufacturability.
