Better Products for a Better Future
Design-for-Environment (DfE) is a methodology that has revolutionized the way engineers approach electronics products, increasing their efficiency and decreasing their environmental and social impacts. The many business advantages of DfE include a 1%-5% reduction in Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), increased reliability (80% of DFE principles increase reliability), and increased competitive edge and customer loyalty. As the regulatory burden on electronics products grows, the demand for DfE-trained engineers has increased. With DfE OnlineTM, this methodology is now available to you in a time-efficient, self-paced package, saving you hundreds of hours of research.

DfE OnlineTM will teach you DfE principles to develop products that are in compliance, more efficient and less costly to produce. DfE OnlineTM provides you hundreds of tools, tips, case studies, videos, and interactive exercises, as well as a professional Forum.
