Psychosocial Factors in CAD/CAM Research and Development Activities
This paper is aimed at providing information about the psychosocial research work in a technical research group in the program for Design and Planning, sponsored by the Swedish Board for Technical Development. The work is carried out at the Unit for Computer Aids in Production at KTH. Identification of psychosocial factors of importance for work-satisfaction and a systematic consideration of human factors as well as analyzing methods for these are the main aims of the project.
