In September 2006 an integrated European project (IP) was launched entitled "Flexible Assembly Systems through Workplace-Sharing and Time-Sharing Human-Machine Cooperation (PISA)". The general aim of the project is to develop intelligent assist systems (IAS) in order to support the human worker instead of replace him. The idea is to combine human flexibility, intelligence and skills with the advantages of sophisticated technical systems. Further developments within the project are focused on reconfigurability and reusability of assembly equipment, and required planning tools for end-users. The paper presents the initial project objectives, and the resulting prototype systems developed by the partners of the PISA consortium.
