Modern extensively digitized factories can provide workers interfaces for gamification. The current literature highlights the importance of understanding the context before implementing gamification solution, while there are currently only few such solutions provided for the factory floor. In this study we aim at closing this gap by defining the context defined aspects for gamification at factory floor. We conducted a thorough mapping of current literature proceeded by a qualitative interview study with eight workers and their supervising manager at a manufacturing facility.
