This paper describes features of a Man-Machine Interference Study. The study was carried out primarily to investigate the changes in production efficiency that occur when one man operates two or more machine tools. It also covers however, the situation when a group of men operate a group of machine tools. Such studies are important in ensuring efficient machine tool utilisation, in examining process planning procedures, in the forward planning of production resources and manpower levels and in determining suitable pay systems.The study reported in this paper was carried out by means of computer simulation and it was developed for use within Leyland Vehicles. The scope of the simulation and the facilities available in it are discussed in the paper and these illustrate the situations that can be handled, and the insight into the typical multi-machine production situation that can be achieved.
