Abstract

The fourth industrial revolution has brought new challenges to the production workers in so-called smart factories. The flexible production process and many different product variants call for well-trained human workers. This paper contributes towards a better understanding of manual assembly workers in their everyday environment, since most advances in the production environment are technologically driven. Findings based on the Contextual Design methodology will be discussed and further analyzed in the crosscutting aspects of user, work, social, and environmental context.
