Product design and product manufacturing are two different worlds and in practice often decoupled. As a company primarily focused on mechanical and mechatronical assembly, Variass realises the design their customer provided. Still many defects are encountered when bringing the design into production, causing unnecessary scrap and repairs. This project aims to develop a structured approach to identify and quantify possible defects in advance of actual production of mechanical and mechatronical designs. It’s output will serve as feedback towards the designers how the design can be further improved to minimize defects and enhance overall product quality. Main insights for this approach are Design for Assembly and Design for Six Sigma, where the points of interest from assembly perspective are linked to quality issues measured in defects per million opportunities.
