Manufacturing companies are confronted with challenges due to increasing flexibility requirements and skill gaps. Augmented Reality applications offer an efficient way to overcome these tensions by enhancing the interaction between people and technology. The positive effects of Augmented Reality solutions are often described in individual models in the scientific literature. This research-in-progress aims to aggregate the empirical findings in the usage of Augmented Reality solutions in manufacturing environments. A meta-analysis is conducted to synthesise several small studies into one large study to achieve this. In particular, the meta-analysis will focus on the impact of Augmented Reality applications on cognitive load levels. Furthermore, the effect on processing time and error rates will be evaluated. Initial results of the meta-analysis will be expected and reported at this year’s NeuroIS Retreat.
