In the north-eastern states of India, paddy threshing is mostly carried out by traditional methods (such as bullock treading; beating by hand; crushing by foot, etc.) which require an enormous physical effort. These discomfited situations expose workers to many risk factors from ergonomics viewpoint. Therefore, it has been perceived that there is a necessity for systematic design and development towards low cost, manually operated, portable thresher considering the contextual need and topo-geogr...

Computer-aided Design (CAD) and Digital Human Modeling (DHM) (specialized CAD software for virtual human representation) technologies endow unique opportunities to incorporate human factors pro-actively in design development. Challenges of enhancing agricultural productivity through improvement of agricultural tools/machineries and better human–machine compatibility can be ensured by adoption of these modern technologies. Objectives of present work are to provide the detailed scenario of CAD and...

Indian plastic processing industry comprises of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). Manual labor and locally designed workplace fixtures are observed in shop-floor workstations. Aim of present research was to identify incidence of musculoskeletal ailments and awkward working postures among workers in the granulator workstation and propose design modifications from physical ergonomics perspective. Combination of research techniques comprising of questionnaire study, postural assessment t...

Work comprising of manual labor is a distinctive shop floor feature of Indian micro-, small- and medium-scale enterprises in manufacturing sectors. Investigations from an ergonomics perspective have not been performed in Indian plastic processing industries till date. Present paper aims to evaluate physical workload, psychosocial work environment, and subjective workload associated with blending workstations of small- and medium-scale plastic processing industries, in order to propose context-sp...

Handgrip strength is considered as one of the most important factors for performing various agricultural tasks related to torqueing, lifting, pulling, pushing, etc. Hand tools and equipment which are designed based on anthropometric/strength data of different population, may not be suitable for any particular targeted user group. As a result work related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) at upper extremity may occur very often. Lack of strength data of Assamese population (people of Assam, a sta...

Research towards developing user-compatible, ease in use and safe agricultural equipment with proper consideration of human factors using cutting edge technology like Digital Human Modeling (DHM) and simulation is very important in today's scenario. This technology offers new possibilities to integrate ergonomics principles into design process from the very beginning (conceptual phase) to solve complex problems in many engineering disciplines. However, its application is till very limited in agr...
