A new methodology combines design rule check (DRC) and design for manufacturing (DFM) into one consistent deck of enforceable rules and introduces an implementation cutoff decided by technology and business factors. This new methodology is based on the failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) and return of investment (Rol).
