DESIGN FOR POKA-YOKE ASSEMBLY AN APPROACH TO PREVENT ASSEMBLY ISSUES
It is important to be aware about assembly quality issues due to they represent a significant proportion of quality defects in many companies. These issues are commonly analyzed after they occur and it is observed that best solutions to eliminate them are performing poke-yoke redesigns in the product. This research propose a Design For Poka-yoke Assembly-DFPA approach, focused in define how designers can identify since early design stages the potential assembly quality issues in order to establish, as part of the customer requirements list, the assembly design requirements that has to be complied to design a product oriented to prevent assembly quality issues. By using DFPA approach it will be reduced the need of later poka-yoke redesigns.
