Voor het verbeteren van de productiviteit in organisaties zijn velen al langere tijd op zoek naar methoden om dit begrip goed te meten. Het blijkt een lastige zoektocht, met weinig consensus en, belangrijker, de praktijk zit er vaak niet op te wachten. Dit is met name het geval in de dienstverlening en de non-profitsector. Niet dat men daar het...

Purpose: The paper aims to present an approach to improve the organisation's productivity which is applicable in every industrial sector. The nucleus of the approach is to develop an optimal productivity strategy in an organization by the application of a uniform static model of productivity (Q4-model), covering quantity and quality aspects and...

Due to shorter productlife cycles in manufacturing industry there is a lot of pressure on the process of designing new work systems. Early attention for human factors would lower the costs compared to changes at a later stage. Low cost tools for workstations design could help especially small to medium sized assembly enterprises. However, these...

Five case studies on production line design were described to study the effect of an early design support tool. Based on these case studies, the simple, interactive, real-time, medium-fidelity, mixed-reality methodology was not only found to be a good early design stage evaluative tool for ergonomics and workflow, but a teaching tool as well....

Early cost-benefit analysis of ergonomic interventions in manufacturing is in the interest of the production management and the ergonomics specialist. Because of the variety of factors and the complexity to quantify these factors, this task is not an easy one. In this article we present a case study that illustrates that the economic benefits of...

Diverse trends in arbeid maken dat ons bewegingpatroon verandert. In veel sectoren (kantoren, maakindustrie, transport) bewegen we nog maar weinig, zijn de resterende bewegingen repeterend en monotoon van aard en blijft de krachtsinspanning laag. Niettemin leidt dit type activiteit tot lichamelijke vermoeidheid. Wij betogen in dit hoofdstuk dat...

A negative aspect of serial flow production systems is its lack of flexibility. Other production systems like the flexing flow and the shopping system are more flexible as the number of workers can be easily adjusted to temporal demands. But how efficient are these flexible systems? In a laboratory experiment we studied the worker’s productivity...

Current assembly enterprises are under a lot of pressure, as they are faced with increasing volume demands and product variations, needs for shorter delivery times and cost reduction. This pressure is likely to increase the pressure on individual workers. In many small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), we observe that traditional assembly...

The rhythm in assembly, defined as the repetitive pattern of actions in time, is increasingly recognized as a crucial factor in assembly. Rhythm includes aspects like cycle time, action variation, work content and work rest schemes, and it affects productivity, quality, worker's motivation and worker's health. By the organization of the assembly...

As mentioned in Chapter 9, two major issues play a role in manual assembly operations: reducing discomfort as a precursor to health problems and increasing productivity. In this project the engineering department and the workforce adapted the production lines several times. Several tools such as simulation software were used, and at first sight...
