    how would you improve hardware assembly process

    Rolando Garza

      Lets say a capable assembly person has a few hundred hardware configurations to put together.

      (1 bolt: 2 washers: 1 nut) <image>

       

      This is the current process:

      Place the washer on the bolt - head side.

      Place the bolt through the hole.

      Place the washer on the bolt – nut side.

      Hand tighten the nut onto the bolt.

      Hold the head still with a wrench.

      Torque down the nut with another wrench.

       

      Using the same 4 pieces of hardware, how could you improve this process?

       

      Remember now, .....Using the same 4 pieces of hardware.
