How digital technology is impacting Ergonomics, from work design to risk mapping
Simulation, wearable technologies, motion capturing systems, automatic work analysis and upcoming innovations will close the loop between product/process design and daily management of work in manufacturing
About this event
A meeting point for researchers from European universities and users and experts from manufacturing to promote the exchange of experiences and views. An international symposium to share valuable information on the open challenges in academic research and on the latest industrial applications in the field of new digital technologies to boost workers’ health and ergonomic and efficient work systems design.
A broad array of talks covering diverse topics, leading through wearable sensors and digital tools for ergonomics simulations, motion analysis and automatic risk assessment on workplaces, data capturing, management and utilization, exoskeletons.
Doing what has been said is essential for one’s credibility.
In industry, the concept could translate into the ability to achieve productivity targets which have been set at the stage of product and process design. Nowadays, productivity targets cannot exclude the biomechanical load component: just as it is necessary to define the standard times of a manual task, it is absolutely important to predict the biomechanical load demand generated by the planned work content and its frequency of execution (takt time).
The key to success lies in designing an effective and ergonomic work process (Method) and in combining it with the best human resource (with the right skills and the correct anthropometric and biomechanical characteristics). Once again it is a question of bringing together demand (of biomechanical energy) and supply (of performance).
In the III edition of the EIS 2022 titled “How digital technology is impacting Ergonomics, from work design to risk mapping” we will address the issues of the application of the most modern digital technologies from product/production process design to the daily management of factory work efficiency, giving particular emphasis to the ergonomic aspects and risk mapping due to biomechanical overload.
