About this book

This book presents the proceedings of the 21st Congress of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA 2021), held online on June 13-18, 2021. By highlighting the latest theories and models, as well as cutting-edge technologies and applications, and by combining findings from a range of disciplines including engineering, design, robotics, healthcare, management, computer science, human biology and behavioral science, it provides researchers and practitioners alike with a comprehensive, timely guide on human factors and ergonomics. It also offers an excellent source of innovative ideas to stimulate future discussions and developments aimed at applying knowledge and techniques to optimize system performance, while at the same time promoting the health, safety and wellbeing of individuals. The proceedings include papers from researchers and practitioners, scientists and physicians, institutional leaders, managers and policy makers that contribute to constructing the Human Factorsand Ergonomics approach across a variety of methodologies, domains and productive sectors.

This volume includes papers addressing the following topics: Transport Ergonomics and Human Factors, Practitioner Case Studies, Human Factors in Robotics, Manufacturing, Agriculture, HF/E in Supply Chain Design and Management, Aerospace, Building and Construction.
