The aim of this paper is to achieve optimisation of spot welding sequence to minimise the distortion of a sheet metal assembly. The distortion of the assembly involving number of spot welds is different for different sequences of welding The assembly consists of sheet metal components which are joined by using various welding sequence schemes. The components are manufactured in quantity and welding with various sequences. After welding the distortions in an assembly due to welding sequence change are worked out and compaired. The sequence with minimum distortion is suggested a solution for the quality manufacturing with minimum distortion induced in it.
