A classification of carrier and content of information
Paper in proceedings, 2012

Mass customization is a driver for increased assembly complexity and the variety and complexity of products and parts require new and effective information and information flows to support final assembly operators. How to best present and convey information is however a difficult task. The aim of this paper is to develop a classification of carrier and content of information that can be used as a support for task allocation and design of new information systems for an assembly environment. The developed classification is mainly based on how different carriers and contents are being used in assembly and related to literature. In the design of new decision and information systems both carrier and content needs to be optimized and the concept of content and carrier needs to be contextualized in order to be useful in a task allocation and design process.
