Abstract

Participatory ergonomics simulation (PES) is a method to involve workers in simulation and design of their own future work system. Understanding of the process of PES is crucial in order to plan and facilitate the process towards creating an ergonomics work system design supporting both human well-being and overall system performance. With outset in two cases of PES in hospital work system design, this study investigates the elements of the PES process and their interrelations. The aim is to develop a framework describing the PES process in hospital work system design.

Keywords: participatory design, human factors and ergonomics, hospital work systems, simulation-based design
