Fourth edition



Complexity and dynamics characterize today's working world and place high demands on the performance, innovation and adaptability of companies and their employees. Therefore, the design of efficient and productive work processes is becoming increasingly important, in which employees find harmless, tolerable and reasonable working conditions, develop their scope of action, contribute their competencies and can develop them further in cooperation with others. This book explains the essential models and methods for analyzing, designing, and optimizing work processes with regard to the mentioned criteria. In doing so, the major subject areas of ergonomic research and teaching such as employees, forms of work, company and work organization, group and teamwork, working time, work management, occupational health and safety, workplace health promotion, work environment and ergonomics are systematically presented and taught in a practical manner using design examples.

The fourth edition has been completely revised.
