Abstract

Small lot sizes in modern manufacturing present new challenges for people doing manual assembly tasks. Assistance systems, including instruction systems and collaborative robots, can support the flexibility needed, while also reducing the number of errors. This session is designed to give participants a better understanding of the strengths and limitations of the different technologies with respect to the practical implementation in companies. Several new technological solutions designed for companies will be presented. In addition, participants will be given the chance to gain first-hand experience with some of the technologies presented.
