    During the 1980s, developments have been taking place in several European countries to establish concepts of human-centred system design. Today the design of a technical system is often understood as the design of a more or less automated system and will always be the design of a man-machine system. The dual design approach is a set of principles to insure appropriate development of both technical... View full abstract»

    The author outlines some of the problems (both economic and environmental) that the manufacturing industry will have to face up to in the future. The author then suggests that effective solutions to these problems cannot be developed within the framework of the current division of knowledge. The way forward lies in a world without boxes, something which is definitely not the basis of an easy solut... View full abstract»

    In the attempt to make the fabrication of certain products more flexible, two things have become apparent in the past. On the one hand, maximum division of labor (in the Taylorian sense), in most cases, will not produce optimum results; instead, increased attention should be paid to sufficient qualification and appropriate organization of the persons involved in the manufacturing processes. On the... View full abstract»
