Multiple parts for two different assemblies arrived in bulk at OEM assembly plant and were delivered to the production line in cardboard boxes. This resulted in production inefficiencies, poor ergonomics, and compromised quality.
New tray was designed to incorporate multiple components into one custom tote. Tote was engineered with a common outer tray and snap-in insert tray. Each insert contained all of the parts required for its own unique assembly. Components were nested to provide sufficient clearance for easy manual handling.
Production efficiency is enhanced. Assembly ergonomics are improved and errors eliminated with a tray that contains all of the parts required for an assembly. Quality is improved. The OEM’s tooling investment was minimized by using a common outer tray with interchangeable inserts for both assemblies.
