April 8, 2011 – Parts Package

I’m always thrilled to see good directions with a product.  So really, that means I’m hardly ever thrilled.  Typically the directions seem to be poorly translated from another language, or vague with poor or no drawings.

That’s why I was excited to see this new format in parts packaging (for a new office chair).  Labeling and packing the parts with their corresponding section of the directions, rather than having a big bag of nuts and bolts was a bold new step.

However, the written instructions were not good.  There were parts and steps that were not mentioned in the directions and were left unused and there was a part that was needed that was not listed in the directions.
