Methods for the work processes analysis, flow process diagram, Ishikawa diagram, ABC chart. Methods for the analysis of time efficiency in the workplace, current methods of observation. Ergonomic design for work. Physiological work conditions. Psycho-sociological conditions at work. Working environments conditions, lighting, noise, micro-climate, color. Anthropometric conditions at work. 5S steps for decorating workplace by Kaizen. Rational principles of operation.
Lectures will be organized by thematic units from the theoretical basis with the presentation of examples. Specific tasks and examples of subject areas will be processed on the exercises, certain methods of work process improvement will be treated in detail, with the involvement of students in independent tasks and thereby the emphasis will be on teamwork.
