Design For Poka Yoke Assembly-DFPYA is a new DFX created to prevent potential assembly issues since early design stages. This prevention is possible by designing the product with poka-yoke or error-proofing characteristics. DFPYA guide designers to make decisions based on poka-yoke assembly design requirements. As results of the application of these requirements designers are able to create solutions to prevent assembly issues for the specific product in development. This paper proposes the application of MOKA methodology to capture, organize and storage the poka-yoke designs that are created in a specific Company in order to reuse this knowledge in future new product development projects.
