Human supervisory control of advanced manufacturing systems is characterized by dynamic, discrete, and random decision-making tasks. With humans in the system control loop, there is a concern on cognitive task allocation based on human mental workload and performance. Traditional task analysis techniques based on observable actions are no longer appropriate. In this article, an analytical model was developed based on the conceptual model of human workload prediction proposed by Salvendy (...

Reviewing past accidents is one way to identify hazards caused by advanced manufacturing systems and to manage accident prevention efforts. However, only a limited amount of data is currently available on industrial accidents due to advanced manufacturing environments, or these data cannot be easily distinguished from general industrial accident statistics. The main objective of this study was to examine the self-reported accident data attributed to advanced manufacturing en...

In order to prevail in the emerging turbulent business environment, the work organization of advanced manufacturing must be able to adapt diligently and dynamically to the vicissitudes of a volatile market. Meeting this demand requires horizontal exchange of information within a self-organizing cooperative ensemble of decision makers with a high degree of autonomy in their strategies and conceptualizations. Advanced manufac- turing therefore poses new demands on the information sys...

Abstract The purpose of this research has been to identify and summarize principles that have appeared in Human Factors, Manufacturing, and Management literature that apply to an ideal Sociotechnical Integration (STI) of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMTs) and to develop a Knowledge-Based System prototype that, using these principles, can help diagnose the degree of STI present in an organization that has upgraded or is planning to upgrade its manufacturing facilities with A...

It has been widely argued that the organizational and strategic issues have to be considered for the successful implementation of Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT). However, there are still some questions left unanswered. What specific dimensions of the organization and strategy should be considered? When should they be considered? How could they be interrelated during the process of implementation? This article tries to look at these questions through (1) the development of a conce...

A central part of the design of a production system is to methodically weigh the production factors, labor, and capital (machines, robots, etc.) and integrate them into a well-functioning unit. The purpose of this article is to analyze the impact of human factors on the design of an Advanced Manufacturing System (AMS). The impact is illustrated in a case study of a Swedish engineering company. An investment in automated spot welding is justified in a Life-Cycle Cost analysis. In th...

This article examines, using a case study format, companies that have attempted to introduce just-in-time, total quality management, and advanced manufacturing technologies as new manufacturing improvement initiatives. In all cases, it was found that the new systems cannot simply be placed into an organization without carefully attending to a number of human resource issues such as training and skills, cooperation and involvement, and overall work culture. In manufacturing <...

The need to effectively manage technology has been around since the early days of American industrialization. Pioneers of American manufacturing such as DuPont and Ford all faced competitive pressures to develop and apply emerging technologies. In the past decade, the rash of failures involving the implementation of advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs) suggests technology implementation requires a better understanding of the human issues involved. Fundamental to the implementation o...

The science of behavioral cybernetics deals with the analysis of human behavior as a closed-loop, self-governed process. Social cybernetics focuses upon the reciprocal feedback interactions between two or more individuals in a group or organizational setting. Human-computer interaction (HCI) also can be characterized as a social cybernetic process. The central thesis of this paper is that social cybernetics provides a comprehensive conceptual framework for understanding the nature and sou...

In order to be effective, human factors interventions must have a better understanding of technology and the processes within organizations which shape both technology and its effects on the work that human beings do. Rather than being primarily determined by the capabilities and characteristics of technology, it is argued that the organizational outcomes of technological change are a product of political processes of choice and social negotiations within adopting organizations. Technical influe...
