A Skill Transfer Method for Manual Machine Tool Operation Utilizing Cutting Sound
This study focuses on the inheritance of skills that has faced difficulties through the years in Japan. Sensorimotor knowledge, which is hard to be described by words alone, is often seen in technical skills in a manufacturing environment in Japan. Interpreting sensorimotor knowledge as formal knowledge, attempts have been made to impart technical skills but have faced barriers particularly in lathe processing due to no visual check of finished quality being allowed. Thus, this study suggested training on the inheritance of skills utilizing the level of cutting sound generated in process. Novice workers served as experimental subjects for an experiment to verify the effectiveness of proposed training.
