The present study covers the optimal design for a lens module in a mobile phone camera by using the design of experiments (DOE) and finite element (FE) analysis. FE analyses are performed to investigate the effect of design parameters on the amount of torque required to assemble a barrel and a housing part. The DOE approach is then performed to optimize the design parameters in order to maintain an appropriate torque with less variations.
