Flow simulation is increasingly used in the early stages of production system design when basic flow patterns are chosen. This paper describes and discusses a linear approach to integrating load information – based in biomechanical assessment of a work cycle - with the output from a flow simulation to predict cumulative workload. Integrating ergonomics information in these early design processes represents an opportunity for the joint optimisation of ergonomics and productivity in system design.
