Also in modern industrial production, manual hand assembly sites are useful for certain assembly tasks, where people manually put together the parts. For example, hand assembly sites are useful when mounting soft components or when the number of parts to be assembled is not very large. Technological tools are often used to facilitate the work of the assemblers and to ensure that the parts are assembled efficiently and correctly.
The work is facilitated for example by the humane positioning of storage containers, which as intelligent containers when necessary also can automatically order new components.
In order to install the parts correctly, control systems are installed at many assembly sites, which display the correct containers via light signals, from which the next part to be mounted has to be removed.
