- Where: Secure Zoom Webinar
- How Long: 1 Hour + time for questions
- Presented by: BOSTONtec
Ground Breaking Research:
What makes the research unique is the design of the time and motion study that focuses on tasks that are typical for assembly and packaging processes in an industrial environment.
You will gain insight into ergonomic risk factors, effects on cycle time, and value-added versus non-value added motions.
The study’s results are the basis for detailed recommendations for workstation designs to improve productivity and accuracy while reducing repetitive motion workplace injuries.
Automation has made significant advances, but many tasks remain that are being performed by human operators; these tasks are often the more difficult and repetitive ones.
Designing a work environment for today’s diverse workforce that reduces repetitive motions, awkward postures, and heavy lifting is essential in reducing operator strain and injury, all while improving productivity.
