System: The goal of MTMergonomics is to predict, as accurately as possible, the risk for physical strain which can occur during planned activities. Such predictions can be made in the planning phase of production based on pre-established MTM analyses, as well as, in the production phase. Changes to the production plan can then be made to eliminate or reduce detrimental strains and lead to an improvement of the ergonomic design of any production system. In each phase the connection between ergonomic design quality, required assembly time, and financial expenses for the work design is immediately recognizable, thereby making possible a comprehensive, sustainable, and optimized design.
MTMergonomics works toward this in the following subtasks:
- Prediction of detrimental physical strain while in the production planning phase
- Development of risk assessments to evaluate physical strains
- Evaluation of organizational design methods with regards to physical strain
Course: This 5-day course educates students about the ergonomic factors that affect productivity and employee well being. Techniques used in the evaluation and improvement of the work environment are reviewed. BlueCard® certification in Ergonomics will be issued to those that successfully complete the course.
