  1. 1. Levels of Automation in Production Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jörgen Frohm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi; Work sciences and ergonomics; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing engineering; production; automation; task allocation; levels of automation; measurement;

    Abstract : Although automation is often seen as an efficient way to achieve cost-efficient production and to relieve humans from heavy or dangerous tasks, it also has its drawbacks. Earlier research has shown that increasing levels of automation in unforeseen production situations can be related to production disturbances. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Denna avhandling behandlar automationsolycksfall inom tillverkningsindustrin. Automationsolycksfall definieras som ett olycksfall där en person skadas av en energi som kontrollerades, eller borde ha kontrollerats, av en automatiserad utrustning. Avhandlingen grundar sig på av fem vetenskapliga artiklar. READ MORE

  5. 5. Learning in production systems : a study of operator work in highly automated process and manufacturing industry

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Bo Davidson; Per-Olof Svedin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1999]

    Abstract : The aim of this monograph is to study the work of operators with regard to the conditions of developmental on-the-job learning. This objective can be further described in the following questions: (1) What characterizes the conditions of developmental on-the-job learning for operators in highly automated industry? (2) How are the conditions realized of developmental on-the-job learning? (3) What is the importance of vocational education, personnel training and on-the-job learning as regards their effects on the operators' vocational competence?Based on activity theory and action theory we have chosen to define learning as relatively lasting changes in the competence of an individual as a result of the individual's participation in an activity.
