Numerous high-end products continue to be manufactured by people (and will continue to be so in the near future). Wherever dexterity, intelligence and experience are indispensable for high product quality, people are on duty.
The digitalization of the product development process requires simulation tools. These should map human work activity sufficiently well that the influence of the »human factor« on product quality can be mapped and product quality ensured. The ergonomic design of workplaces is equally important, supports experienced workers in maintaining their health and in this way likewise supports a high product quality.
