Subject of course

Social aspects of assembly in Central Europe, humans as a central role in assembly (performance curves, stress and strain and load-impact, work content, ergonomics, work organization, occupational safety), rationalization / humanization measures in the assembly design, overview of existing assembly systems / assembly types / assembly activities, value added and waste in assembly activities, assembly costs, time management in assembly (MTM, REFA, primary-, secondary analysis, etc.). Planning, design and evaluation of assembly systems with existing methods (time management methods, cardboard engineering, digital methods), protection of personal data, usability, qualification in the assembly.

A practical lecture round off the lecture and provide practice-oriented examples and experience from industry.
