This paper introduces an effective new Design For Quality tool called the Assembly Reliability Evaluation Method (AREM) that visualizes assembly fault potential. The distinctive features of AREM are: (1) visualization of parts and operations having a high fault probability; (2) evaluation of shop reliability, as well as product reliability and, (3) easy data input by symbol selection as well as simultaneous assemblability evaluation; can be evaluated quantitatively. The method can be integrated with other DFX tools such as the Assemblability Evaluation Method (AEM), and the Recyclability/Disassemblability Evaluation Method (REM/DEM) to realize a comprehensive production design evaluation system.
