New Trends in Production Compliance: Human Centered Design, Simulation and Ergonomic
Employees working in manufacturing environments are prone to workplace injuries. This is due to the type of day-to-day tasks assigned to workers such as:
• Repetitive actions
• Awkward postures
• High forces (pushing and/or pulling)
• Exposure to vibrations from tools and equipment
• Equipment malfunctions
• Difficult to reach areas
Additionally, as the competitive market for manufacturing escalates, many workers are continuously asked to work harder or longer hours even while management attempts to cut costs.
How Can Companies "Do More With Less" While Still Prioritizing the Health and Safety of Employees?
With human modeling and simulation, you can improve the safety, efficiency, and comfort of your workplace environment using Jack and Jill virtual humans. Human-centered operations can be analyzed with lifelike models that can be scaled to match different population characteristics.
Test design and operational aspects of a wide variety of human factors, including injury risk, timing, user comfort, reachability, line-of-sight, energy expenditure, fatigue limits, and other important parameters. This helps you to ensure compliance with ergonomic standards during planning and to avoid the discovery of human performance and feasibility issues during production.
