The Design process of a mould is essentially a creative optimization process.
It aims to define a mould as efficient as possible, as it reduces material waste and cycle times in the injection process according to the latest state of the art developments. Design must ensure that it is reliable and the quality of the final product is always ensured.
Design management also means planning. It should be done in a team, seeking to adopt the "best practices", so that the resulting product meets the desirable result.
Two aspects stand out in the design process: part design and mould design.
Nowadays, CAD / CAM software, simulation and rapid prototyping are current and necessary good practices.
