A comparison of two methods for assembly complexity- What are they good for?
Paper in proceedings, 2015

This study aimed at comparing two methods for assessing manual assembly complexity, the CXB considering basic assembly complexity from product design perspective and the CXI, which assesses complexity as perceived by operators in production. The objective was to see if and how the two methods overlap. The results showed that they had some assessment criteria in common but that other criteria differed and covered different areas of interest. Both method approaches are important for a manufacturer to manage in order to create sustainable assembly conditions, good working conditions and reduce errors in manual assembly.
