Abstract

Purpose In the redesign process of assembly components that need adaptation to robotic assembly, designers can find support from structured methodologies for innovation, such as the theory of inventive problem solving (TRIZ). This paper aims to illustrate the authors' methodology for redesigning gas hobs components for adaptation to robotic assembly. Design/methodology/approach A designer approaching a redesign task of an assembly component of any kind for adaptation to robotic assembly must consider, first of all, the features and limitations of existing robotic assembly systems; the generation of new design ideas that best fit the requirements may result to be a very challenging task. Here, the TRIZ methodology has proven useful for generating design ideas and finding the best solution. Findings The authors' methodology approaches the challenges of redesign tasks for robotic assembly adaptation, which exploits knowledge of automatic and robotic assembly systems and the TRIZ method for innovation; it has proven useful in the redesign, checks and prototyping of gas hobs components. Originality/value This paper shows how the TRIZ methodology can be integrated into the redesign process and its impact on an industrial environment. The work's main value is to provide a set of steps to help the designers change their design components approach that is necessary but not still implemented to optimize the use of the automation.
