Abstract

This project aims at evaluating the machines and proposing solutions to make the process of attaching connectors to Printed Circuit Boards more efficient by reducing the pressing cycle time at Amphenol TCS' Changzhou, China facility. Through ergonomic analysis of the current design, along with a series of interviews and surveys, we developed several solutions to address the shortcomings in productivity and suggested several ergonomic modifications as well new machine design concepts to help improve the operators' working conditions.
