© 2019 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. As part of a research project a holistic planning system for human-robot interaction (HRI) is developed, focusing on the applicability for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). This paper details several important aspects of the planning system, including an easy identification method of suitable processes for HRI. A key element is the work allocation between human workers and robots. The allocation considers e.g. technical feasibility, cycle time as well as personnel deployment and can easily be carried out by SMEs. Based on a simulation, a comprehensible scenario evaluation is developed, focusing primarily on economic aspects but also including ergonomic and safety considerations.
