The role of workers in factories of the future is expected to change from labour-intensive to knowledge-intensive activities. Acquisition and formalisation of knowledge is a complex and time-consuming task limiting the performance of manual processes. This paper presents a framework to capture, manage and apply knowledge in a manual assembly process. The framework has been illustrated using an example of a riveting process. The proposed framework is intended to help in decision-making during a process, thereby minimising faults and improving productivity. In future, this framework needs to be validated, and if necessary updated, for other manufacturing processes.
