Abstract [en]

Modern manufacturing information systems allow fast distribution of, and access to, information. One of the  main purposes with an information system within  manual assembly is to improve product quality, i.e. to ensure that assembly errors are as few as possible. Not only  must an information system contain the right information, it must  also  provide  it  at  the  right  time  and  in  the  right  place.  The  paper  highlights some of the concerns related to the design and use of information systems in manual assembly.  The  paper  describes  a  study  that  focuses  on  the  correlation  between active information seeking behaviour and assembly errors. The results are founded on  both  quantitative  and  qualitative  methods.  The  study  indicates  that  by  using simplified information carriers, with certain characteristics, the assembly personnel more easily could interpret the information, could to a higher degree be prompted (triggered) about product variants and could also be able to prepare physically and mentally   for   approaching   products   arriving   along   the   assembly   line.   These conditions  had  positive  influence  on  quality,  i.e.  gave  a  reduction  of  assembly errors.
