How to digitize assembly work instructions?

The project will maximize the contribution of assembly operators into the creation and updates of work instructions, because they know about the best common practice. Through an integrated flow of information collection by direct explicit operator input, implicit operator observance and utilization of CAD design information, work instructions will be created, updated and released in order to offer to the assembly operator highest involvement, best work practice and highest flexibility to overcome the burden of continuously increasing product variance and assembly complexity.

We at imec-mict-UGent are performing the user feedback on the factory work floor to capture implicit and explicit knowledge via technology.
