Rework involves disassembling and repairing a unit that failstesting. Not all units require rework, but the average is 0.40hours per unit. Presently, the testing is done on the completedassembly; but much of the rework has been related to motors, whichcan be tested independently prior to adding the motor to thetreadmill during final assembly. Thus, motor issues can bediagnosed and solved without having to disassemble the completetreadmill. This change will reduce the average rework per unit byone-quarter.
