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.
