Application of Job Difficulty Index© to compare work severity using P-SVR© method of Ergonomic analysis
Pages : 417-422
Job Difficulty Index (JDI) using Posture-State Variation Report (P-SVR) methodology of postural analysis described here helps in evaluating the job difficulty level of work cycle quantitatively. For improving work content, the element of work with highest severity of score and with the longest duration can be highlighted. These work elements can be analyzed further and improved to simplify the work content. Posture – State Variation Report method is used for work simplification through postural analysis.
Keywords: postural severity of work element, P-SVR, JDI.
