Human Interaction in the Manufacturing Design Process 975650
Manufacturing design processes for complex systems, like advanced fighter aircraft, require a special emphasis on human interactions to technical fabrication and assembly functions. The role of the human is being refined as manufacturing processes become more sophisticated. The infusion of human performance requirements into manufacturing design is a sensible approach to achieving efficient, cost-effective manufacturing processes. We will discuss the early input of ergonomics criteria and the benefits of addressing the human interaction in the manufacturing design process.
