Automated systems based on human skill (and intelligence): selected papers from the IFAC Symposium, Madison, Wisconsin, USA, 23-25 September 1992
Published for the International Federation of Automatic Control by Pergamon Press, 1993 - Technology & Engineering - 124 pages
This symposium brought together end-users, managers and designers to examine and discuss the interaction between automated systems and related technologies and those working with them. It is increasingly clear that the optimum method to implement modern production processes is to involve all participants in the systems paying particular attention to the needs and abilities of end users and machine operators. The papers in this volume represent progress towards the goal of an increase in the efficiency of technology and the workforce and the realization of a skill based system of manufacturing, process and clerical work.
