Human Factors in Manufacturing 10 Oct 2016: The manufacturing industry remains an important contributor to our economy and society, and therefore seeks to maintain current efficiency as well as seek new innovation and improvements. People will continue to be indispensable in manufacturing, bringing inimitable physical dexterity and cognitive skill needed for manual assembly tasks, but we also face rising levels of digitisation and automation which is transforming shop floor environments, and adapting operator roles. The event will include keynote talks, tours and workshops about human factors and the future of manufacturing for those with an interest in addressing human factors issues that arise from ‘traditional’ manual work, and in helping organisations optimise the design and implementation of new technologies and processes so that operators can effectively manage their exciting but revolutionary job role changes.
