Dynamic Management Architecture for Human Oriented Production System
In advanced factories, human workers or craftsmen are required to achieve highly flexible and skillful production. This paper introduces a dynamic management architecture for human oriented production systems. The proposed architecture includes two technologies; one is a communication network based on an active database system, and the other is a dynamic scheduling method to reflect the workers’ satisfaction, ability and flexibility. It has been verified by several case studies that the dynamic management architecture proposed is effective in realizing an efficient human oriented production system, which considers the workers’ satisfaction, ability and flexibility.
