Many systems for process monitoring using in-process sensor measuring rely on human interpretation and reaction in order to control the process and achieve the desired effect from the monitoring. This paper reports from two industrial cases of process monitoring. The first case from piezo-electric force sensors tool condition monitoring on a machine tool, the other case a system for OEE monitoring. Results show that social-technical systems (STS) design and how humans learn are important elements on order to utilize the capabilities for the monitoring system.
