The shift from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0 represents a significant change in how technologies are approached in workplace design. Industry 4.0 was characterized by the automation of the production process, with a focus on maximizing output and efficiency. However, as Industry 5.0 becomes more relevant, the focus is moving toward the importance of putting people at the center of the production process. This means designing workspaces that prioritize human comfort and productivity and finding ways to integrate technology that supports and enhances human abilities. One of the key technologies that is helping to facilitate this transition is collaborative robots or cobots. By working alongside humans, cobots can help improve production efficiency while allowing for greater human involvement in the production process. However, to fully leverage the potential of cobots, it is essential to design workspaces that are optimized for human comfort and productivity. This requires taking into account the needs and preferences of both human and robotic resources and finding ways to allocate tasks in a way that maximizes efficiency while also taking into account human well-being. One promising approach to achieving this goal is the implementation of a dynamic multi-objective task allocation system, as presented in this work. This method uses physiological and performance data to evaluate the well-being of human operators and dynamically re-allocate tasks to ensure that operators are not overworked or fatigued. This is a significant step towards creating truly human-centered production environments that prioritize the well-being and productivity of human workers.

Abstract

The shift from Industry 4.0 to Industry 5.0 represents a significant change in how technologies are approached in workplace design. Industry 4.0 was characterized by the automation of the production process, with a focus on maximizing output and efficiency. However, as Industry 5.0 becomes more relevant, the focus is moving toward the importance of putting people at the center of the production process. This means designing workspaces that prioritize human comfort and productivity and finding ways to integrate technology that supports and enhances human abilities. One of the key technologies that is helping to facilitate this transition is collaborative robots or cobots. By working alongside humans, cobots can help improve production efficiency while allowing for greater human involvement in the production process. However, to fully leverage the potential of cobots, it is essential to design workspaces that are optimized for human comfort and productivity. This requires taking into account the needs and preferences of both human and robotic resources and finding ways to allocate tasks in a way that maximizes efficiency while also taking into account human well-being. One promising approach to achieving this goal is the implementation of a dynamic multi-objective task allocation system, as presented in this work. This method uses physiological and performance data to evaluate the well-being of human operators and dynamically re-allocate tasks to ensure that operators are not overworked or fatigued. This is a significant step towards creating truly human-centered production environments that prioritize the well-being and productivity of human workers.
