A framework for the integration of human factors in cyber-physical production systems

Becker, Till / Stern, Hendrik

Abstract

The ongoing development towards the introduction of cyber-physical systems will create changes in work area design in manufacturing and logistics. Examples are highly computerized tools or new tasks due to a changed allocation of work tasks between humans and machines. Hence, the success of the utilization of the potential enabled by cyber-physical production systems highly depends on to what extent they are designed for humans. Therefore, an integrated system design that includes human factors at an early design stage is required. This work is intended to serve as a starting point for the development of designto- human factors for cyber-physical production systems. On the basis of the present state-of-the-art of relevant scientific research a hypothetical model is developed, which provides work area design principles with regard to job performance in cyber-physical production systems. We use an interdisciplinary approach consisting of research and findings from human factors, ergonomics, engineering, and work psychology in connection with engineering goals. Finally, the findings are transferred into a framework for interested applicators.
