Assignment: “Assembly methods/time NGC (New Generation Citea)”

NGC (New Generation Citea) just started. There has been made some choices that were influenced by the amount of assembly time. The goal of this assignment is check the experiences of the electronic assembly into the bus and come up with suggestions to improve. See if there are “low cost, high impact” solutions available. Join the assembly without any forehand knowledge so you will pick up aspects that can be improved and/or simplified. For example, usage of materials, can we still reach important parts etc.  


The outcome must be tested on safety, and must have a positive effect on the assembly and reachability. Beside this you are free to explore the possibilities and we expect a healthy dose of ownership and pro activeness.
