Workers are key enablers of flexibility and productivity in Manufacturing, especially in processes where full automation is not feasible. Such workplaces are often characterized by manual manipulation of heavy loads, hazardous conditions and high level of vibrations. Exoskeletons, fusing flexibility, intelligence and human-centered control with the high payload, endurance, precision and sensor-based guidance represent enabling technologies to cope this challenge. In this paper critical parameters for the evaluation of exoskeleton-centered workplaces are identified, as core elements of the methodology for evaluating the exoskeleton-centered workplaces. Comprehensive modelling, simulation and analysis of ergonomics and process parameters represent the foundations of the methodology.
