  1. 1. An investigation of cognitive aspects affecting human performance in manual assembly

    Author : Anna Brolin; Keith Case; Peter Thorvald; Leo De Vin; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cognitive ergonomics; Manual assembly; Manufacturing; Usability; Cognitive workload; Information presentation; Material presentation; Product variants; Kitting; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Modern manufacturing systems seem to be shifting from mass production to mass customisation, which means that systems must be able to manage changes in customer demands and requirements, new technology as well as environmental demands. This in turn leads to an increase in product variants that need to be assembled. READ MORE

  2. 2. Anthropometric diversity and consideration of human capabilities : Methods for virtual product and production development

    Author : Erik Brolin; Roland Örtengren; Dan Högberg; Lars Hanson; John Rasmussen; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Ergonomics; Human Factors; Anthropometry; Multi-Dimensional; Diversity; Digital Human Modelling; Simulation; Visualisation; Workplace Design; Product Design; Accommodation; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Contemporary product and production development is typically carried out with the support of computer tools where the design of products and workstations are originated and evaluated within virtual environments. Ergonomics addresses factors important to consider in the product and production development process to ensure a good fit between humans and the items being designed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Consideration of anthropometric diversity : Methods for virtual product and production development

    Author : Erik Brolin; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Ergonomics; Human Factors; Anthropometry; Diversity; Digital Human Modelling; Simulation; Visualisation; User Centred Design; Workplace Design; Product Design; Accomodation; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Ergonomics and Human Factors address factors important to consider in the product and production development process. This is done through a User Centred Design process where focus is put on human-machine interactions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Managing Interruptions in Manufacturing : Towards a Theoretical Framework for Interruptions in Manufacturing Assembly

    Author : Ari Kolbeinsson; Dan Högberg; Peter Thorvald; Jessica Lindblom; Steve Summerskill; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Interruptions; Manufacturing; Mobile Devices; Cognition; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : The effect of interruptions from ICT systems on assembly workers in manufacturing is examined in this thesis, as is how the risks of errors, increases in assembly time, increased cognitive load and resultant stress can be mitigated, as well as ensuring that important new information is acted upon. To these ends, a literature study was conducted, followed by two studies using an experimental approach in an environment that simulated a manufacturing assembly situation, and used tasks designed to be representative of manufacturing assembly tasks.

  5. 5. Situating interruptions in manufacturing assembly

    Author : Ari Kolbeinsson; Jessica Lindblom; Peter Thorvald; Dan Högberg; Tobias Grundgeiger; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Abstract : Interruptions have been studied extensively, with interruptions experiments where tasks performed on computers are interrupted by another task received on the same computer having receiving much of the focus. Additionally, many of the tasks used in existing research have been designed specifically to test the effect of interruptions on humans by making both the interrupting task and the task being interrupted quite difficult.
