Event: The Future Industrial Worker workshop
Date: Thursday 23 November 2017
Location: The University of Nottingham
Increased automation, increased use of analytics and sensor data to inform decisions about design and manufacture, and a reduction of reliance on ‘craft-based’ skills will define future manufacturing work spaces. Future technologies will need to ensure that humans remain ‘in the loop’ – able to intervene when systems fail, and complete maintenance and oversight tasks, whilst being having sufficient workload to maintain their attention and ability to have full situation awareness.
This workshop considers the impact of the revolution in the nature of manufacturing on the work that people do. The day will combine presentations with open discussion and group working sessions to address questions relating to the future industrial worker and to define research priorities in this area.
