Validation of the Dynamo Methodology for Measuring and Assessing Levels of Automation
Paper in proceedings, 2007

The purpose of measuring Levels of Automation (LoA) is to find an appropriate level for balancing the system for achieving high effectiveness. Results from an interview study with manufacturing experts working in the Swedish industry showed that measurement of automation levels is not common, mainly because of unfulfilled prerequisites and barriers to be overcome. This paper forms a platform for fulfilling some of the expressed prerequisites and overcoming some of the barriers to measure and assess LoA in manufacturing value flows. The paper provides a deeper knowledge on how to measure and assess the automation used in an industrial setting.
