The goal for TIMEBLY is to increase competitiveness, create sustainable workplaces and improve conditions for digitization through better time basis for manual assembly.
The digitalization of the manufacturing industry puts focus on the input data. One of the most challenging processes to acquire accurate time for, is manual assembly and materials handling. The TIMEBLY project will address these challenges with the ultimate goal to increase the competitiveness, enhance the digital readiness and at the same time create a sustainable work environment. The technological development with better sensors and more computing power enables new ways of determine the times and new possibilities to do simulations of workplaces.
TIMEBLY’s improved collection and analysis of data for manual tasks will have four major impacts:
The challenge of creating time bases for low volume and high variety production will be addressed through a design science approach where the researchers together with the participating companies design and test new methods to efficiently develop TDM systems. The aim is to generalize this knowledge and disseminate to other companies through several channels such as a handbook and workshops.
