Bendzioch S.; Hinrichsen S.: How to Configure Assembly Assistance Systems – Results of a Laboratory Study. In: Nunes I. (ed.): Advances in Human Factors and Systems Interaction. AHFE 2020. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, vol 1207. Cham: Springer 2020, pp. 25-31

Manual assembly is shaped by increasing product complexity with higher scope of work and fluctuating demands. To cope with these changes, employees need to collect and process more information. Companies, therefore, face a wide range of challenges, particularly in terms of information supply. Informational assistance systems provide employees with cognitive support, helping to manage complexity. To evaluate the potentials of such systems a laboratory study is accomplished at the Laboratory for Industrial Engineering of the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts. In this paper, selected results of the laboratory study are presented and recommendations for a configuration of assembly assistance systems are derived from the results.
