Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler interviewed Sam Bradbury and Mark Heidebrecht, partners at Ergonomics International in Evolving Enterprise magazine. Bradbury and Heidebrecht discussed the importance of data-driven analytics as a return to work strategy during the pandemic. Read the entire feature here.
Bradbury shared, “COVID-19 impacts the need for data-driven analytics. Data-driven analytics are totally essential in helping employees and employers. Ergonomics International just announced the immediate availability of a COVID-19 Employer Management System (EMS) for abatement strategies. Employers must be armed with necessary tools to identify at-risk employees, track those with COVID-19 immunity, and recognize potential carriers.”
Heidebrecht explained, “If data-driven ergonomic principles are applied during the design stage, the risks and number of handling points are reduced. This leads to more efficient processes and fewer touches. Movements are money; reducing human movements increases profits and gets the product out the door quicker.”
Cutler noted that, “No manufacturer can allow a plant, facility, or distribution center to re-open with the needed precautions. That is a no-brainer for the large corporations, but with 90% of all North American manufacturers employing less than 500 people, it is remarkable that there is a highly cost-effective solution for even the smallest manufacturer.”
The Evolving Enterprise is the new digital magazine bringing real-world applications for headline technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
