Ergonomics matters in advanced manufacturing technology

G. I. Johnson (Editor), John R. Wilson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In recent years, great progress has been made in the development of computer-based technologies that support the manufacturing industries. Those concerned with advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) are becoming increasingly aware of the fundamental implementation, operation and organizational issues to the successful development, implementation, operation and maintenance of AMT. The disciplines of industrial ergonomics and occupational psychology, therefore, have a significant contribution to make in this field.
This book which derives from a conference held at Nottingham in October 1987, provides a state-of-art review of the present and potential contribution of ergonomics and associated behavioural sciences to the design, development, implementation and evaluation of AMT and examines the people-related problems encountered during the introduction of AMT into industry.
