Serena Finco, Mohammed-Amine Abdous, Daria Battini, Martina Calzavara, Xavier Delorme : Assembly Line Design with Tools Vibration. To appear in IFAC-PapersOnLine, Elsevier, 2019, 9th IFAC Conference on Manufacturing Modelling, Management and Control, MIM 2019, August 28-30, 2019, Berlin, Germany


This study integrates vibrations aspects in the Assembly Line Design Problem (ALDP). During the last decade, ergonomic aspects have been considered by several points of view in the assembly design problems in order to reduce work-related musculoskeletal disorders. However, the workers vibration exposure level, caused by the use of automatic tools to perform some tasks, has not still discussed as a part of ALDP. For this reason, a new model is here proposed to compare the total costs of an assembly line with and without the integration of the ISO 5349-1, the European norm that defines the vibration exposure limit for workers. The application of the model here proposed in two real industrial contexts shows the effects of the vibration level maximum exposure in the final assembly line design costs.


Les travaux récompensés ont été réalisés dans le cadre d’une collaboration internationale avec l’Université de Padoue (les deux thèses sont en cotutelle). Ils portent sur la prise en compte de l’ergonomie dans la conception des systèmes de production.
