Concept model towards optimising Levels of Automation (LoA) in assembly systems
Paper i proceeding, 2010

Advanced automation is a common solution to achieve high productivity and quality. However, the human operator still has not been surpassed by automation in terms of flexibility and adaptability. Therefore, appropriate Levels of Automation (LoA) must be selected to meet the triggers for change caused by internal and external demands. This paper presents a concept model, aiming towards optimizing automation solutions in assembly system to avoid over or under automated systems.
