AVIX Ergo Balance

BETA version

Ergonomic line balancing

Ergonomic Balancing is a concept developed with stakeholders from the academic world, the industry and the AVIX software team.

Traditionally line balancing is focused on distributing the workload (assembly time) equally between the resources. At a later stage, if at all, the ergonomic strains for the humans is considered. It doesn´t have to be that way!

Ergonomic balancing is a critical aspect of workplace safety and health. It involves the careful consideration of the human body's capabilities and limitations, as well as the specific tasks that workers are required to perform. By designing products and workstations that are ergonomically balanced, organisations can reduce the risk of disorders, repetitive strain injuries, and other health problems that can result from prolonged or repetitive use of poorly designed equipment or workstations.

Using AVIX Ergo Balancing both assembly time and the ergonomic strain are considered in parallel and are equally important.

Human well-being

Using Rapid Entire Body Assessment, REBA, or other assessment models, helps to reduce poor work postures and risks to suffer from musculoskeletal disorders from repetitive use of poorly designed equipment or workstations. AVIX Ergo supports REBA as standard and visualize the result in an easily understood way.

System performance

When balancing an assembly line one objective is to achieve an even flow through equal workload for all operators. In other words, to reduce balancing losses. With AVIX Ergo Balance both assembly time and ergonomic load are distributed more evenly between work positions along the assembly line.

True ergonomics!

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. That´s what AVIX Ergo Balance is about!

Areas of applications

  • Optimize the assembly line from a human well being perspective
  • Identify line positions that are demanding from an ergonomic point of view
  • Identify product variants that are heavy for the human to assemble
  • Eliminate poor ergonomic situations
  • Optimize work rotation to prevent musculoskeletal problems
  • Balance the line based on time and ergonomy


Execution optimizer

Helps improving production line output by analyzing and optimizing build schedule/production programs.

Balancing by drag’n drop gives the user the possibility to follow the line balancing improvements when moving around work tasks. The assembly time and the ergonomic strain are both visualized in the chart. Colors and bars will clearly show when assembly time exceeds the takt time and when the ergonomic strain is higher than what is allowed. This gives the production engineer great possibilities to find the best solution to the line balance problem.
