Human Factors in Future Manufacturing

Loading Events

‘Human Factors in Future Manufacturing’ is a one day event, organised by the CIEHF, to be held at the prestigious new Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) ‘Factory 2050’ digital research facility in Sheffield.

The event aims to bring together ergonomics and human factors practitioners with engineers and industrialists interested in the human issues of future manufacturing through a series of presentations, discussions and tours of the AMRC facility.

There is no doubt that future manufacturing will involve greater digitisation, automation and augmented technologies. These exciting developments are already beginning to transform industrial working environments and methods. Supporting these transitions, particularly by uniting multidisciplinary interests, is the CIEHF Manufacturing Sector Group, led by Dr Sarah Fletcher of Cranfield University.

We are pleased to announce the programme as follows:

09:30 Introduction: Steve Barraclough, CIEHF
