Development and testing of a screening approach for the evaluation of forceful operations in industry

Schaub, Karlheinz and Wakula, Jurij and Berg, Knut and Oberle, Marius (2015):
Development and testing of a screening approach for the evaluation of forceful operations in industry.
In: Proceedings 19th Triennial Congress of the IEA, Melbourne (Australien), 07.-09.01.2015, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

In 2006 to 2008 the project „Force Atlas for Assembly Operations" was carried out (Wakula et al. 2009a, b; Schaub et al. 2014). Maximum isometric action forces of the whole body and finger-hand system were measured from male workers (n=273) in real working postures in assembly tasks. Based on the collected force data and an analysis of existing approaches (e.g. EN 1005-3), a “classical” force assessment approach for shop floor and planning analysis was modelled with respect to the state of art in ergonomics and the results of the own lab studies (Wakula et al. 2011). Different tasks of force exertions - homogeneous as well as heterogeneous ones can be analyzed using this approach. The modelling resulted in a paper and pencil method and an EXCEL spread sheet
