Utilized Ergonomics is a concise textual content concentrating on the sensible purposes of ergonomics and comes from the once a year, ground-breaking, winning convention of a similar identify. this isn't a convention lawsuits yet a textual content of purposes, filling a distinct segment within the ergonomics expert marketplace for a e-book that's powerful at the purposes part of the sector instead of the basically educational. This booklet covers a number themes with regards to functions in engineering, drugs, and overall healthiness & protection, and encompasses a variety of case stories and examples. The e-book is divided right into a variety of thematic sections which concentrate on help and repair jobs, ergonomics within the place of work, well-being administration and layout. inside those sections are chapters at the use of the net, ergonomics courses, and the economics of ergonomics. these concerned with the appliance of ergonomics ideas will locate this assortment either informative and fascinating.

Example text

1 ABSTRACT A wafer fabrication facility was recently upgraded from 150mm (6-inch) to 200mm (8inch) wafer production, a project that involved the purchase of a considerable amount of capital wafer processing equipment. Although industry ergonomics guidelines existed, and the manufacturer’s application of these guidelines was a corporate requirement for the purchase of new equipment, there was not an effective tracking system in place to ensure that all new equipment met these guidelines. The ESHEER (Environmental, Safety, Health and Ergonomics Equipment Report) process was developed as a means to track and document safety and ergonomics issues associated with new equipment.

It is important to note that the primary leader of the solutions team was not a VF ergonomics team member, but was the VF engineering team member who owned the system being modified. The primary role of the VF ergonomics team member was to ensure that the solution met the established ergonomic guidelines. 5 Solution Testing and Implementation The final proposed solution is taken to the Alpha test stage, which consists of prototype development and initial testing of the solution at one Intel site.

3 Ergonomic Design Criteria Resolving ergonomic challenges in existing operations is necessary, exciting, and can make a real impact on the health, safety and performance of operations. However, in rapidly-changing manufacturing companies such as Textron Automotive, solving existing problems is only half the battle. A parallel effort is needed in the design and selection of workstations, tools, and equipment. Experience has shown that it is much more cost effective to “build in” good ergonomic design, rather than to “bolt on” solutions to address poor ergonomic design.
