In the light of a rising number of product variants and increasing dynamics of product modifications in industries such as vehicle and machine construction, the use of complexity management strategies in manual assembly is essential. In this paper different strategies are presented. In the age of digitalization, the strategy of providing cognitive support to assembly workers is highly important, and is therefore described in more detail with the help of morphological boxes. These boxes will support practitioners to develop a company-specific strategy for in-formation management in manual assembly.
