To conduct ergonomic assessments of assembly stations, various methods and tools, especially digital human models, are available. These models are used to evaluate physiological criterias of handling assembly parts, tools and assembly processes. A missing criteria is the human factor on the metal side. The cognitive workload of the assembly worker is an additional criteria to evaluate its workplace. Therefore a method is necessary to evaluate the cog-nitive workload of an assembly task, too. To reach this goal we use cognitive models. These models descripe human cognitive information processing. We implemented such models for the assambly task and connected it to a digital human model. This combination allows an estimation of the mental workload of an specific assembly task.

Keywords: Digital Human Model, Cognitive Model, Mental Workload, Evalua-tion Assambly Tasks
