Application of design principles for assembly instructions – evaluation of practitioner use
Journal article, 2018

Production complexity causes assembly errors due to that the demands on the operators are high and there is a need to improve assembly instructions. Design principles for Information Presentation (DFIP) is a method developed to support such improvement and its application was evaluated in three case studies, 152 practitioners. Results indicate that DFIP use help simplifying the information presentation so that complexity can be reduced, and that step 4 is easiest to understand. In addition, the implementation of assembly instructions gave positive results.
