Abstract

Empirical studies have documented skills that make humans superior to machines in various contexts while keeping them inferior in some others, nevertheless; humans are recognized as the most flexible element in a production system. This paper relates the theory of Lean automation with human-machine interaction; thereby taking benefits from the bests of humans and machines in a combination. The result is biomechatronic production systems. We present a framework that discusses the physical, sensorial and cognitive capabilities of humans; and the technologies that can enhance them. One technology for each capability enhancement has been selected and is evaluated for ease of use and industrial
applicability in assembly tasks.
