Automated video analysis of workstation productivity

Using video analysis algorithms and 4 cameras the operations inside a manual workcell are analyzed and features extracted, such as cycle time, value added work, workload, variability, .... This work is the first phase in an approach to provide the workers inside a work cell themselves with realtime information about the productivity and efficiency of their work. This will enhance their ability to improve their own operations, bringing continuous improvement and empowerment to a new level of effectiveness.
