Although a cellular manufacturing system can produce diversified products flexibly, its assembly efficiency is mainly limited by the operators' assembly performance. To improve the operators' assembly performance without longtime training, an assembly-skill-transferring method was proposed to realize the assembly skill transfer process from skilled operators to novice operators. In the cellular manufacturing system, the assembly skills consist of cognition skills and motor skills. Taking a “Peg-in-Hole Task” as an example, the effect of the proposed assembly transfer method was verified for motor skills. The results show that the proposed assembly-skill-transferring system can improve the novice operators' assembly performance greatly.
