Industrial Engineering Management- DFMA analysis

Identify a product or subassembly of a product (with at least 10 unique components and no more than 30 components) that is suitable for a DFMA analysis. Analyse it using the DFMA technique covered in the lecture. Document the process using the charts as provided in the module. Clearly state any assumption that you made during the analysis.

The analysis must include as a minimum:

i) An initial assessment of the product, with a BOM, handling and assembly times, and essentiality. Include a design efficiency calculation and value. Show how you determine the  and  values and also, show how you assess whether each part is essential or not.

ii) A redesign of the product. This must be clearly explained to the reader using e.g images to show the changes.

iii) An assessment of the new design, with a BOM, handling and assembly times, and essentiality. Include a design efficiency calculation and value. Provide a design improvement value and calculation.

iv) Consideration of the manufacturing processes required and changes in those between the initial and revised design, and consideration of that on the cost of manufacturing the product.

2b) Visual Summary Report

With reference to the DfMA analysis performed in 2a, create a one page (maximum) visual summary report to be presented to the company responsible for the design and manufacture that details how you can improve their product. It should include details of design changes and the benefits that they would yield. This should not contain a lot of text but should be visual and contain the critical information only.

Disputing theories on when industrial/organizational

Throughout the years, there have been two disputing theories on when industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology began. Some experts believe that I/O psychology began in 1903 when Walter Dill Scott wrote The Theory of Advertising. Others believe it began when Hugo Münsterburg wrote Increasing Human Efficiency in Business. The use of I/O psychology has influenced many events such as wars, civil rights legislation, court decisions, and science. Throughout its development, I/O psychology has broadened its range to include concepts such as personnel psychology. Many historical events and people in I/O psychology have influenced the development of personnel psychology and continue to influence the field today.

For this Discussion, select a historical event or person you consider most influential in I/O psychology and/or personnel psychology. Consider how this event or person influenced current research.

Post by Day 3 a brief description of the historical event or person that you selected. Then, explain how this person or event influenced current research in personnel psychology. Finally, explain one way you might have experienced an application of this current research. Support your response with the Learning Resources and current literature.
