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.
