Synopsis:

The aim of the subject engineering ergonomics is to become acquainted with the problems,

constraints and the optimal solution of the fundamental unit of an enterprise or organization,

i.e. with system - man - technology (machine) - environment. The character of the subject is

going out from the anthropocentric principle, i. e. that every system MTE as in the manufacturing,

managing, technological, designing so in other spheres it is important unambiguously

to accommodate them to the possibilities, abilities and skills of the weakest link - that is to

the given man. The students will learn not only to start from the man?s limitations during the

designing of the MTE system, but also evaluate the existing economic level of the system and

design rationalization measures for its optimization. The mission of the subject is that the students

will be able in their work on all levels of economic spheres to ensure the optimal wellbeing

for themselves and for the users of the designed systems as well as for their subordinates.

The not-excludable output is also the health of man and higher quality and productivity

of labour.
