Abstract [en]

Using article numbers as identifiers in industry is a well-established practice. However, previous investigations have indicated, although failed to confirm, shortcomings in this tradition when used in human based assembly. This paper will report findings from an experimental study where subjects were asked to perform a reaction test designed to test the response to different types of syntaxes. These syntaxes where article numbers (control), symbols, and names of famous figures. Results show that subjects were able to significantly faster identify a trigger and respond accordingly when dealing with triggers with semantic content (symbols and names) than with article numbers.
