The rising demands of the markets with regard to product individualization and innovative technology deployment force companies to shorten product life cycle times and to use more variants in their production process. To get this flexibility, the employees in the assembly area need to be qualified and supported in an appropriate way. This work presents a concept to support workers during the assembly of products using augmented reality. Head mounted devices are used to demonstrate the correct assembly sequence of the product. The presented data is based on the 3D-CAD models of the product. The different types of parts as well as the positions are detected with the use of optical markers. In that way, changing conditions in the production can be considered. An intuitive interface is implemented to give the worker the opportunity to change program settings tailored to his requirements.
