Human performance modelling as an aid to manufacturing system design

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Once the factory worker was considered to be a necessary evil, soon to be replaced by robotics and automation. Today, many manufacturers appreciate that people in direct productive roles can provide important flexibility and responsiveness, and so significantly contribute to business success. The challenge is no longer to design people out of the factory, but to design factory environment that help to get the best performance from people. This paper describes research that has set out to help to achieve this by expanding the capabilities of simulation modeling tools
currently used by practitioners.
