Implementation of human-centred cyber-physical systems (MyCPS) - Safe and healthy work and technology design

Project number: F 2413 Institution: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Ongoing Project Planned end: 2018-12-31


The research project MyCPS aims to develop systematic approaches, models, and tools for the implementation of human-centred digital production processes. A participative involvement of employees in the design, use and further development of the solutions is essential. Upcoming new requirements concerning personal rights and privacy are to be discussed with employers, employees and social partners.

In the context of MyCPS the BAuA will expand existing activities to support the design of humane industrial work. Issues relating to the optimal use of smart devices as job assistance as well as tools for occupational health and safety related to the successful implementation of human-centred CPS are going to be developed. In addition, the usability and acceptance of the overall concept will be ensured.

The results of the research project MyCPS will be available for companies in the form of an interactive Migration Toolbox. The Toolbox contains policies and procedures for the analysis, planning, implementation and evaluation of applications for the successful realization of operational change projects towards "Industrie 4.0".

The research project MyCPS receives funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the program "Industrie 4.0 - Forschung auf den betrieblichen Hallenboden" (reference no. 02P14B121) which is managend by Projektträger Karlsruhe.
