Efficient Control Tool of Work System Resources in the Macro-Ergonomic Context
Authors: Małgorzata Sławińska, Marcin Butlewski
Abstract: The article analyzes macro-ergonomic methods in order to build a model that will enable the creation of patterns used during the monitoring of system resource deficits. Usage of ergonomic approach for this purpose has proved to be necessary due to the fact that the character of the system implies not only a very detailed knowledge of the various subsystems (e.g., technical subsystem, biological subsystem, psychological subsystem, ecological subsystem, etc.), but also above all knowledge about the relationship between the various subsystems and the overall structure of the whole system, such as an organizational unit. The tool obtained in this manner includes the following areas of activity: defining the problem, modeling the work subsystem structure, creating event scenarios, and gathering information during experiments using the previously established at the first stage work situation models and models of the course of objective tasks. The results of these experimental studies are the basis for the creation of systematic mechanisms of work system resource control, taking into account the context of tasks and the environmental influence on the organizational unit. The developed method of system analysis taking into account macro-ergonomic aspects is also presented in the form of a practical example.
