Since the beginning of the 18th century, ergonomics and work studies have been used in the manufacturing industry. Because of
the developments in mechanization, the work force has been significantly reduced. To efficiently use the resources of
manufacturing systems, ergonomics and work studies are important and effective methods. Therefore, manufacturing firms are
advantageous for evaluating different opportunities related to ergonomics.
In this study, an ergonomical study was conducted to improve the flow of processes for assembly in a cable manufacturing
company. Then, newly improved processes and machine systems were proposed. Unnecessary work was eliminated, and a
significant gain in time was obtained.
