Because excellence means getting it right the first time.

Product optimization across all phases of Design and Development.

At Plexus, we’re relentlessly focused on providing world-class service that shortens your time to market and optimizes your total cost of ownership. That’s why we provide our customers with dedicated design for excellence (DFX) services and capabilities. When you integrate DFX into your development cycles, you can eliminate surprises in new product introduction — which can be the difference between launching on time and missing a market opportunity entirely.

Early risk mitigation.

Tight schedules, budget pressures or a narrow focus on form and function sometimes tempt companies to overlook design for excellence. That’s almost always a costly mistake. The results can be disastrous — added product redesign cycles, higher probability of quality defects, missing cost targets. It can seriously hamper scaling up your manufacturing or create challenges in sustaining your product. Integrating DFX early on allows us to mitigate those risks to ensure a successful product launch.

Collaboration and customization.

Our DFX services bring everyone that's critical to flawlessly launching your product into the development cycle. Downstream stakeholders including — Supply Chain Solutions, Test, Manufacturing and Aftermarket Services — bring valuable, specific insight to the impact of initial design on later stages. Because we’re passionate about delivering the highest level of service, we’ll develop an integrated DFX solution that’s customized to your unique design process and engineering culture.

Proprietary, experience-based DFX ruleset.

The heart of our DFX services is a proprietary set of guidelines, based not only on industry standards, but on an empirical dataset culled from our own extensive product portfolio. That means you’re benefiting from our real-world, collective wisdom, generated by years of product launches across markets and spanning various technologies. We’ll leverage all of that understanding to help increase your competitive advantage.
