Facts4Workers: Worker-Centric Workplaces in Smart Factories

by Dörthe Arndt, Joachim Van Herwegen, Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens, and Rik Van de Walle

Factories of the future will autonomously deal with the ever increasing amount of available data. Processes will be planned automatically. Computers will keep track of machine parameters, product quality and workforce activities. But, how powerful these systems might become, the resulting new "Smart Factories" will always rely on experienced human workers and their skills. Therefore, such systems should support the worker where possible. They should intelligently enable him to further develop his skills, to learn new things and to fully use his innovation capacities. Our project Worker-Centric Workplaces in Smart Factories focuses on the factory worker. We do not understand the worker as a rather insignificant component of the modern factory, but as its center. Our ambition is to create "FACTorieS for WORKERS" (FACTS4WORKERS).
