Abstract [en]

The fast changes in the industry require improved production workstations which ensure the workers' safety and improve the efficiency of the production. Technology developments and revised legislation have increased the possibility of using collaborative robots. This allows for new types of industry workstations where robots and humans cooperate in performing tasks. In addition to safety, the design of collaborative workstations needs to consider the areas of ergonomics and task allocation to ensure appropriate work conditions for the operators, while providing overall system efficiency. By facilitating the design development process of such workstations, the use of software simulations can help in gaining quality, save time and money by supporting decision making and testing concepts before creating a physical workstation, in turn, aimed to lead to better final solutions and a faster process of implementation or reconfiguration. The aim of this study is to investigate the possibility of having a human-robot collaboration in a workstation that is based on a use-case from the industry. The concept designs will be simulated and verified through a physical prototype, with which ergonomic analysis, time analysis, and risk assessments will be compared to validate the resultant collaborative workstation.
