Three European researchers were invited to the international symposium at Waseda Univ., and human-oriented manufacturing systems (HOMS) in EC were studied through them.
(1) Prof.Dr.B.Knave, Dept.of Neuromedicine National Inst.of Occupational Health introduced the health effects at the computer works in EC.Some of the health effects are eye discomforts, skin symptoms and hypersensitivity to electricity. To solve these problems HOMS concept is very important.
(2) Dr.D.Brandt, University of Technolohy, Aachen introduced human-oriented machine tools. In order to design the human interface he insisted the cognitively compatible design methodology using mental models. An actual human-machine interface has been developed for CNC lathes. And users generally appreciated the straightforward way of working with this system.
(3) Dr.E.A.Hartmann, John Deere Werke Mannheim introduced the methodical steps of the human-oriented tractor final assembly system. Nine scenarios were proposed and evaluated according to the newly developed criteria. And one scenario was selected and it is now under construction.
Through these presentations the most advanced technologies of HOMS and related problems were effectively studies. This symposium was very useful for not only our research members but also many other persons concerned.
