Humans in the production system

Industry challenge: Strengthen cooperation between humans and automation, develop people’s achievements and increase productivity and flexibility.

Although the future manufacturing industry is digital, human still has a vital role. Complex production requires competent people to collaborate with advanced automated production systems and robots. Digitalization, sensors and large amounts of data impose new demands on personal safety, communication, interfaces and allocation of tasks between people and technical systems. As the technological development demands virtual and global networks, it also enables access to information regardless of language. New technical solutions also make it possible to develop workstations, working methods and ergonomics.
