    The management of manufacturing increasingly makes use of information technology, and concomitantly the role of human factors has grown. From the perspective of managing engineering technology, the author identifies four of the trends currently being introduced into British Industry: total quality, the distributed enterprise, communications and the software engineered manufacturing organisation.&l...

    The paper, by reference to an experimental industrial application of human-centered computer integrated manufacturing (HC-CIM) systems attempts to outline a new, more balanced approach, a balance between technology, organisation and the greatest asset any company possesses, its people. It is an approach in which technology is shaped around people and not where people are fitted around the technolo... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the methodology adopted within a major Alvey project, 'design to product' (DtoP), to design a series of user interfaces for a range of AI-based tools and their accompanying utilities. It moves on to discuss some of the major issues and problems that arose during the development of these interfaces and some of the conclusions reached by the HUSAT team during the project.<<...

  • Human considerations of AGV utilisation in multi-product batch manufacture

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):7/1 - 7/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (154 KB)

    The use of AGV's in batch manufacturing requires extensive changes to the job design of employees, to individual areas of responsibility and to the organisational structure. Due to the importance of the man/machine interfaces, co-operation of employees is essential, and any erroneous attitude by senior management, who might aim at investment justification by labour replacement will cause industria...

  • Human factors in CIM: a European perspective

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):2/1 - 2/7
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (326 KB)

    The paper enumerates some of the business and competitive pressures that are at work in manufacturing, which are slowly bringing about an increased awareness that the success of CIM lies not in removing or incapacitating shopfloor employees, but in handing over to them significant amounts of decision making authority and control. It describes the concept of human-centered CIM and the research and ... View full abstract»
