Assessment approach for analysis of whole body action forces at assembly-specific workplaces in industry.
In: 10th International Symposium on Human Factors in Organisational Design and Management, Grahamstown (South Africa), 4. - 6. April 2011, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

Based on the maximum isometric forces data estimated in the project "Force Atlas for Assembly Operations" and analyses of existing “classical” approaches (e.g. EN 1005-3), a force assessment approach for shop floor and planning analyses was modelled in line with current scientific knowledge and the results of own laboratory studies. The results from the laboratory studies have been used for modelling a new “biomechanics-factor” as a multiplier for the assessment approach for estimation of “recommended” force. The factor increased muscular effort for asymmetric trunk / leg postures and one- / two-handled force exertions depend on the force direction. Different tasks - homogeneous and heterogeneous can be analysed using the approach. This instrument allows the user to derive maximum recommended force values from maximum isometric action forces taking into account specific task and worker related parameters.
