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.
