Measuring and analysing Levels of Automation in an assembly system
Paper in proceedings, 2008

This paper proposes a methodology called DYNAMO to facilitate the selection of right Levels of Automation. The DYNAMO method thoroughly maps the existing product and information flow as well as the automation level in separate parts of the system. It then analyses and identifies future automation possibilities, i.e. the automation potential seen from the company’s perspective. This paper also reviews a further development of the DYNAMO method based on validation and case studies. Furthermore, reflections and delimitations about the methodology will be discussed.
