Title:Augmented reality in complex manufacturing systems as an informational problem: A human-centered approach

Abstract:The informational complexity that characterizes future manufacturing environments raises new problems in the Information Science and Information Management fields. New facets of the information overload problem are being revealed e.g., as textual and "smart data" from the manufacturing processes are continuously generated and pushed to the workers, beyond their cognitive capabilities. The challenge of making use of augmented reality in manufacturing pro- cesses, empowering the human-worker, has not yet been addressed by Information Science as an information organization and retrieval problem. Furthermore, manufacturing processes are more and more knowledge-intensive, so knowledge codification, transfer, and use are another challenge not addressed so far from the information management point of view. Therefore, the objective of this doctoral research project is to study the combination of augmented reality technology (as a way to convey real/virtual visual information), centered in the human-worker (as the crucial key user) as an information organization/retrieval problem, from the theoretical perspectives of Information Field. In this poster, we present the research design and the preliminary results of the literature review.
