Modification of Jig Design to Improve the Ergonomic Rating in Manufacturing Process
Ergonomics is the study of the job, equipment and workplace in order to make them suitable and convenient to the workers. At an appliance manufacturing company the ergonomic rating of a worker’s hands and arms movement was higher above the desired value. Moreover, there were accidents that occurred on these lines sometimes. This paper analyzed the current scenario and developed a new design carried out on manufacturing Line 1 and Line 2 at that company to make the platform and jig more ergonomic to the operators.
