The research was conducted at UD X, this company made one type of pallet, four way entry pallet (local pallet). The average order in a month is 2000 units, which 60% of order completed by the company and the other 40% by subcontracts. In this pallet assembly process, joining each components is doing manually by the operator without tools. While the assembly process needed high accuracy and much time to do. Therefore, tools are needed by operators to carry out the assembly process. So using tools can reduce the process time and the company does not need to subcontracts. To solve that problem, a tool was designed use Verein Deutsche Inginieuer 2222 method (VDI 2222). The result of the design was a pallet assembly aid with allumunium alloy as the base material. The design implementation process which requires a cost of Rp. 6,013,055.26 will be reach the break even point when 7618 units produced. If the design is implemented, the company does not need to subcontract, because with this tool it can save the assembly time by 61.66% from the initial time.
