Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Evaluation of physical workload such as the screening tool Ergonomic Assessment Worksheet (EAWS) were developed and validated for use in industrial manufacturing with short cycles (up to 3 min). If this tool is used for work stations that have significantly longer cycles or no cycle at all, its use is limited. On the one hand, measuring the workload intensity becomes increasingly expensive. On the other hand, the workload intensity for these scenarios has to be examined as well. The following contribution presents an instance of how the EAWS can be used for long-cycle tasks on the example of a maintenance workplace at Deutsche Bahn. This work is focused on methods for adapted data collection from which indicators for possible adjustments to the evaluation procedure can be concluded.
