    Soldering plays an important role in the electronics manufacturing industry, whether it is carried out manually, semi-automatically or fully-automatically. Even though it is straightforward to learn the fundamental techniques involved in manual soldering, it still requires a vast amount of time and effort to reach an expert level. The research presented here aims to simulate the manual soldering process in a haptics environment, and by logging the users’ actions automatically and unobtrusively in the background, the aim is to investigate human hand dexterity and learn how novices and experts operate differently through knowledge capture. A pilot study was carried out in which the obtained log files were parsed and the capture of knowledge was demonstrated.
