Human Modeling & Simulation for supporting workstation design in Manufacturing systems

The HMS-Manufacturing project is a joint effort between La Coruna University (Prof. David Del Rio Vilas) and MSC-LES University of Calabria.

This project focuses on the effective design of manufacturing systems using Human Modeling & Simulation to carry out time and ergonomic analysis. The simulation model recreates the operations of a real manufacturing system devoted to the extraction and manufacturing of roofing slates.
The Data Collection for implementing the simulation model is based on the joint employment of per-pixel depth technology and a free open source video analysis software. Therefore the proposed system is portable, low-cost and suitable for fieldwork.
