On August 30, 2019, The CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) on a `A Methodology for Measurement of Worker Satisfaction in Adjustable Automated Industrial Work Systems´ took place in London, at BSI’s premises.
A CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) is a document published by CEN, the European Committee for Standardization. The overall goal of the envisaged CEN Workshop Agreement is to identify the principal components of automation system design that need to be addressed to optimise human satisfaction and it provides a practical tool that can be directly applied to enhance the implementation of new automation in future human-centred factories. The proposer is Cranfield University (United Kingdom) and the Secretariat is hold by the Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE.
Standardization is considered as an important and relevant topic for A4BLUE consortium since it represents an important tool to transfer the knowledge developed during the project research.
Representatives from UNE, A4BLUE project, MANUWORK project, and European Trade Union Confederation joined the fruitful workshop which results in a first draft of the document.
