The increasing need for bridge infrastructure in Indonesia requires an efficient and lean construction process. The aim of this research to evaluate the use of precast concrete elements on bridges based on the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) criteria. DfMA is a principle design that considers the process of manufacture and assembly components based on the following criteria, i.e., simplificity of design, number of components, standardization on elements or material and ease of handling. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used to determine the weights for each criteria. Data were collected through observations on a bridge project, interviews with engineers and questionnaires. A typical girder and slab bridge is used as an object for DfMA-based evaluation. The results of evaluation design of prefabricated components to recommend some that are suitable for use in bridge construction. The last case study was taken to one of the bridge construction projects on the newly completed highway is done to identify the prefabricated components used. Bridge analysis and re-design are carried out with the DfMA concept, including costs incurred, resource scheduling and discussions of project risk. The results of analysis with simulation design giving efficiency 28,83% simplificity of design; 8,74% number of components and standardization on elements or materials; 25% ease of handling; 51,53% assembly time; 23,39% cost of work and 18,87% duration time. Finally, the level of risk of work received such as weather conditions and work safety is reduced. In closing, recommendations were given for further DfMA development.
