Assistance and Quality Inspection for Manual Manufacturing Processes
Typically, processes and operations of advanced systems for mass production are highly automated.
Cognitive problem-solving skills, flexibility and adaptability make human labor superior to automated systems when small lots or prototypes are being produced. Assistive systems support workers in complex and widely varying operations by providing instructions and assistance for a given situation. Their combination with optical quality inspection systems produces integrated process chains with guaranteed quality and reliability. The elimination of defects and the extra work they generate boost value added.
