Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aim of this paper is to explore and present a proposal for a new work system for the aged worker. The method of research used to establish the system was to observe, record, and measure the actions of sitting workers performing assembly operations on electrical products. An evaluation index used in this study was obtained by measuring the motion time, cycle time per product, and the workload (CFF: Critical Flicker Fusion Frequency and Subjective Symptom of Fatigue). The results lead to the new work system being identified and to the reduction of handling motion of get and place work and the work load. It was determined that the system is adaptable for aged workers.
