Pick-to-light and digital work instructions

The results, obtained from the study below into the effects of age and form of instruction on speed and accuracy of work, will of course be applied in our new implementation processes of pick-to-light and digital work instructions in assembly.

Study of the effects of age and form of instruction on assembly

TNO, in collaboration with the Free University of Amsterdam and Total Productivity, has published the research results of a study into the effects of age and type of instruction on speed and accuracy of work. This study provides a new picture of fast and effective assembly instruction.

Pick-to-Light sensors

The assembly tasks were taught to young people and the elderly in an explicit form through explanations with extensive digital work instructions. In addition, this was implicitly taught with only Pick-to-Light sensors.

Of course we will use this new knowledge for the implementation of the new Pick-to-Light and VisualFactory trajectories

Remarkable research results

  • Learning with an explanation is better for the elderly (50+) than without an explanation (Pick to Light).
  • Performing a dual task harms work performance. This applies to both young and old.
  • Older people are more affected by short-term task changes than young people.

More and more flexibility is expected from our customers. With this new knowledge, we are even better able to optimize the performance of your production employees.
