Making technology work in intelligent manufacturing by participative simulation
van Eijnatten, F.

Nowadays it is essential to anticipate on fast changes in production due to turbulent and demanding markets. The manufacturing workforce, e.g. specialized staff, management and production personnel, plays a crucial role in this process. Therefore, the EU-project 'PSIM' is started. PSIM is Participative Simulation environment for Integral (i.e., involving logistics, technology and human factors) Manufacturing enterprise renewal. Its long-term goal is to enable participative improvement in assembly operations, supported by advanced simulation software. This paper is an abstract of the project description.
