    Industrial production of micro products to be introduced in the market has to be reliable, fast, carried out at a reasonable price and in an acceptable quantity. One of the crucial steps in the process chain related to micro product manufacture is the assembly phase. Here components are handled and assembled into sub-assemblies or final products. Because of the small size these processes are complex and often difficult to automate. It is therefore important to take into account the possible challenges of assembly already in the product development stage, because here the decisions regarding number of components and level of integration are made. This paper describes a systematic characterization of micro assembly methods. This methodology offers the opportunity of a cross comparison among different techniques to gain a choosing principle of the favourable micro assembly technology in a specific case. The methodology furthermore assists the designer in describing possibilities, potentials and limits available when dealing with micro product manufacture involving assembly.
