A core element in EMMA-CC is the ergonomic assessment. Five Fraunhofer institutes cooperate in this work package. The purpose of the ergonomic evaluation is the interpretation of the biomechanical simulation in terms of workload.
The objective is to design work executable, endurable, reasonable and healthy. Therefore physical and cognitive workload has to be limited according to traditional ergonomics. For that purpose, human factors knowledge exists, which is the foundation of an evaluation following the widespread red-yellow-green schematic.
