Ergonomics

Ergonomics: Human factors & Ergonomics is a scientific principle concerned with understanding of interaction between human and the equipment’s, material handling in the work place, designing, evaluation & product modelling and manufacturing applications. Derived from the Greek ergon (work) and nomos (laws) to denote the science of work, ergonomics is a systems-oriented discipline which now extends across all aspects of human activity.  Practicing ergonomists must have a broad understanding of the full scope of the discipline.  That is, ergonomics promotes a holistic approach in which considerations of physical ergonomics, cognitive, social, organizational ergonomics, environmental and other relevant factors are taken into account.  Ergonomists often work in particular economic sectors or application domains.  Application domains are not mutually exclusive and they evolve constantly; new ones are created and old ones take on new perspectives. 

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. Ergonomics is comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems, is the practice of designing products, systems or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them. Ergonomics is employed to fulfill the goals of occupational health and safety and productivity. It is relevant in the design of such things as safe and easy-to-use interfaces to machines and equipment. Proper ergonomic design is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability. Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.
