This study proposes a methodological review and an illustrative example for the physical stress management in manufacturing system. In particular, it investigates the complexity of human factors, as related with ergonomics and fatigue, and their interaction with resources and operational rules in flow assembly line. The paper implements system dynamics and agents based approach to overcome discrete events ineffectiveness. On managerial pursuit, correlation between relevant variables and states in system are evaluated as per optimal production requirements. Criticality on operating rules as related to the evaluation of physical stress in manufacturing tasks are reported. ANOVA tests were discussed. Conclusions in terms of optimal assignment of operators to workstation and moving choice between workstation are reported as related with system and human effects. Recent Publications 1.
