Benefit Evaluation of Digital Assistance Systems for Assembly Workstations.

Abstract

The diversification of products results in more challenging jobs for employees working within the production processes. Digital assistance is expected to increase the performance and flexibility of employees. This paper presents a framework to analyse the influence of digital assistance systems on essential target variables in a production system. For this purpose, functions of the digital assistance system, effects on the employee and key performance indicators are defined. From this, hypotheses are derived to describe the effect of digital assistance systems on employee performance. Subsequently, a concept for the verification of the framework and the hypotheses is presented. The approach allows to quantify the benefits of digital support in production. This supports acceptance and enables decision-makers to integrate digital technologies more benefit-oriented.
