The purpose of this report is to record the process followed and steps taken to design and implement a new product assembly line. While the implementation of the line required more than what is in this report, the projects outlined are those I was personally involved in and responsible for. This report will outline why the project was required, the steps taken to complete the project, and the challenges faced. Throughout the progression of the project, many different parts and areas were considered. As each of these was brought into focus, new challenges presented themselves and were dealt with accordingly. Due to confidentiality of the project, many aspects could not be shared and were omitted or blacked out from this report. This project was a huge undertaking for all involved and it has been very rewarding to see it all unfold and culminate successfully.
