The PUMA 260 is a 1980s robot manufactured by RP Automation. The purpose of the project is to assess the feasibility of redesigning the manufacturing process and making recommendations to the company based on our findings. The goal is twofold: to apply new and different technology to the existing system in order to lower the cost for the end user to enter a new market for inexpensive robotics and provide recommendations to RP Automation. In our assessment of the product, we provided future students with a body of knowledge that will help them understand how decisions were made throughout the process. We have also built the foundation for a future project for prototyping the new robot.
