Sustainable Value Creation instantiated in Mini Factories for Remanufacturing
Through the utilization of potential for value
creation in regions with a low infrastructure, mini factories can
create local income generation and support regional development.
Diverse qualification levels of locally available workers thereby is a
challenging aspect to be incorporated in process planning and to be
increased through training and qualification measures.
Included in such factories should be a manual or partly automated assembly work place which with equipped with an information technology system. Here automated image based recognition of approved work processes at the manual workplace for remanufacturing of alternators supports faster teaching of humans with different qualification levels by explaining the work task with a universally usable form of description. Automatically classified sequence of work steps, used means of production and work pieces are completed or confirmed by the worker over a user interface. The workers progress during the process may be used for future Man-Machine-Cooperation.
