Abstract:

textabstract"Man is the measure of all things". On human-centered design of products andprocesses.The discipline of ergonomics studies the interaction between man and thedesigned technical and organizational environment. In product ergonomics, thisknowledge is used to develop user-friendly products and in production ergonomicsto design human-friendly (production) processes.Beside social goals, ergonomics can contribute to economic goals of anorganization. With user-friendly products, a company can deliver benefits to itscustomers, which exceed those of competing products. With human-friendlyproduction processes, a company can increase labor productivity and consequentlycan reach important cost-reductions.The growing consciousness of the importance of humans (customers andworkers) for the success of organizations, implies that ergonomics can have astrategic value for the management of organizations. The chair of ErgonomicsManagement addresses the questions how ergonomics knowledge and methodscan be used in the decision-making and design processes of organizations, andwhat can be the resulting business benefits.
