Subject content Procesing and mounting manufgacturing systems. Closed and open, sombined and complex types of workplaces. Individual and team work. Modular workplaces. Industrial ergonomy. Microergonomy. Sensory, informational, adaptive and effector systems. Engineering anthropometry. Static and dynamic anthropometry. Degrees of freedom and control of movements in work. 3-D cyclograms of movement. Working process biomechanics. Methods of testing workloads. Human error factor. Increasinf working efficiency. Models and methods of training. MTM-2 and MTM-3. the systems of logical sequence of movements. Standardisation of sub-operations and operations in garment technology. Designing the method of work and workplace. Computer-aided modelling and simulation of the process of work.
Aim of course Mastering the programme will enable the students to adopt a scientific approach to the investigations of higher efficiency at work, based on reduced workload in the system man-machine-environment. Systematically developed sets of logical sequence of movements and the standardisation of sub-operations and operations in garment technology will result in designing more adequate methods of work and workplaces, in accordance with the engineering and technological prerequisites for the manufacturing process.
