Guidelines for Developing Good Manufacturing Practices

The 4th Edition Design Guidelines for Precision Metal Stampings & Fabrications is published by the Precision Metalforming Association to help answer the metal stamping questions which professionals that engage in forming and working metals have. This publication is designed to help engineers, designers and purchasers to more cost-effectively specify and source precision metal stamped, fabricated and formed component parts. It espouses today's best practices for achieving lower cost, quality parts.

Originally published in 1991, the book is currently in its 4th Edition. Over time it has been distributed to more than 20,000 industry professionals.
