Dealing with industrial risks is a major issue in the design, management and control of production systems. However, the analysis of why and how risks should be taken into account does not seem to be considered as a global question by researchers, who have mostly focused on specific problems, such as stochasticity or uncertainty. The aim of this article is to point out the importance of risk management and control at a more global level during the design of production systems. More particularly, we discuss opportunities to design facility layout solutions that contribute to avoid, prevent, or reduce certain types of industrial risks taken in the broad sense (flow risks, reliability risks, quality risks, safety risks, environment risks, etc.). We discuss the kinds of risks that such facility layout solutions would allow considering. We address the issue of how to represent risks so that they could be taken into account, and we review existing academic and industrial approaches that are close to this topic. We show that approaching risks with facility layout solutions is a promising research direction that is worth more investigation. © IEOM Society International. © IEOM Society International.

One of the issues encountered in Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (RMS) is related to the evaluation and selection of a new configuration among a set of available alternatives to meet unexpected and unpredictable changes/disturbances. Configurations are often evaluated using indicators that are mainly related to performances of technical components of a manufacturing system, assuming that the working environment is safe and healthy. Unfortunately, this assumption is often unrealistic, since it does not take into account some arduous working conditions (such as sustained physical or mental efforts, heavy noise, etc.), which may lead to high instances of sickness leave, inability to operate some equipment, damage to equipment or products, etc. Thus, the best configuration, selected based on product or equipment performance only, can turn out to perform poorly if, for example, required operators are absent or less productive than expected. In this paper, we suggest some human factors and ergonomics related indicators that allow taking into account arduousness of working conditions when reconfiguring a manufacturing system. An Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is developed to assist decision makers in selecting configurations based on both technical and human performance. The results of our experiments show the importance of considering such human factors and ergonomics issues in reconfiguring manufacturing systems. © IEOM Society International. © IEOM Society International.
