Abstract

Improper design of the robotic safety system could create sources of hazards to humans. Regardless of the robotic safety guidelines defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a synchronous consideration between the safety issue and system requirements is needed. In this study, quality function deployment (QFD) is used to evaluate safety for the design of a robotic workcell to ensure that the safety as well as system requirements are designed to meet the user’s needs. QFD converts the consumers’ demands into ‘quality characteristics’ and develops a design quality for the finished product by systematically deploying the relationship between the demands and characteristics. A series of QFD matrices is developed in this study, and the advantages and disadvantages between different designs are also illustrated.
