This paper provides an overview of the first phase of the human factors study undertaken by the Social and Applied Psychology Unit at the University of Sheffield within ESPRIT Project 534. The overall project aims to design, develop and evaluate an automated flexible assembly cell for the production of small-batch, high-precision aerospace components. This paper describes the progress and problems with the human factors study, with particular focus on the development of design criteria and a model of the design process. Future work is also outlined.
