Abstract

In order to promote recycling in the recycling industry, it is essential that suppliers perform a strict inspection before shipping the products using reused or recycled parts. The industry is facing pressures to further improve and standardize inspection quality and efficiency on recycled parts or products. This study thus developed an effective visual inspection method for products using reused parts by inspectors at Recycling Plant N, for assuring product quality. First, a survey was conducted to investigate the current situation at the subject plant. Secondly, another set of surveys was conducted for the 13 inspectors. The survey included a video analysis, a questionnaire survey analysis, and an analysis of eye movements using an eye-tracker, and after the analyses, the differences were specified. Thirdly, by considering the inspection method and inspection orders used by the experienced inspectors, appropriate inspection items, inspection order, and inspection method could be devised.
