Abstract

Industrie 4.0 describes the vision of future production influenced by digitalization. Despite the increasing degree of automation, human factors will still play an important role in order to facilitate a highly flexible production process. This places new requirements on the workforce through new technologies, organizational forms, and workflows. Workforce management needs to consider new competencies required by digitalization and Industrie 4.0. The increasing trend towards the development of assistance systems should be accompanied by the training of workers on the shopfloor for the interaction with and handling of these systems. This paper presents the Toolbox Workforce Management 4.0 for assessing the readiness of human factors and work environ-ments towards the digital manufacturing. The defined application fields and de-velopment stages in each category of the toolbox help to characterize the current state of a company in regards to the human factors requirements and subsequently identify categories where actions are required to maximize the benefits of Industrie 4.0.
