This paper developed an approach to integrate a human-robot collaborative assembly with a manual production line. The integration was completed effectively by exploring several collaboration algorithms. The study was conducted to enhance the working environment by improving the productivity and the quality of the production. Variability in the assembly processes was reduced, thus improving product quality and reducing rejects and reworks. The automation or robot collaboration was evaluated on one of the existing assembly lines, to help worker reduce repetitive work and increase productivity, which will also help to save labor costs over the long term. The inspection outputs from a robot are easily accessible, providing the quantitative data, analysis of which will lead to continual improvement.
