The introduction of computers into the manufacturing environment has resulted in a significant impact on productivity and quality of manufactured products. Computers in manufacturing can be used to perform information processing, to control and monitor the manufacturing process, and to support the production operations in the plant. The use of computers does not, by itself, improve or degrade the skill levels required by operators. This is, in fact, a management function. Managers, product designers, and manufacturing personnel make choices to determine how machines and people will interact. When applied in the proper environment, computer-integrated manufacturing systems will increase machine utilization, reduce production cost, and improve productivity. The effective use of computers in manufacturing can be achieved by defining three major needs: manufacturing education, training, and research and development. This paper will study the elements of human-computer interactive systems and define requirements for proper use of computers in manufacturing.
