Digital Ergonomics

Digital Ergonomics

The trend of digitization every day becomes more relevant in the world of science and ergonomics has not been apart from this phenomenon. Within the framework of industry 4.0, the results of these trends are software tools, virtual environments, and electronics devices, which include sophisticated digital human models and the latest ergonomic methods. The incidence of occupational injuries and diseases associated with industrialization has declined markedly following developments in science and technology, such as engineering controls, protective equipment, safer machinery and processes. The use of new equipment in real time will contribute to make reduction in occupational risk simulating and analyzing different work activities.

Objetivo general

This course aims to introduce this trend in a production workplace model and get some idea of how to the use Digitals Ergonomics in safety operation of equipment and machines; simulation and ergonomic analysis of work in risky environments and finally in the programming and operation of the equipment in a specific lay before their implementation.


The audience is mainly focused on Ergonomics staff, Practitioners, Engineers, Healthcare professionals, Industrial designers, Practitioners and Maintenance staff.


This course uses the fundamentals of ergonomics and the virtual aspects of recreating different situations related to manufacturing and service processes. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to make workshops in class in order to solve challenges and strengthen the concepts.

Section A - Occupational Ergonomics in digital era

    Ergonomics issues will be discussed in work environments focused on understanding the bridges between this issue and the digital world. This section will show the evolution of ergonomics and emphasize the importance of ergonomics in new industrial contexts.

    Lecturer/Teacher: Saavedra-Robinson, Luis. IE, PhD

Section B – Physical Ergonomics (Captiv)

    In this section we will explain the subject of physical effort, the analysis of movement and its importance in industrial environments. For this, we will carry out a demonstration of the use of a direct capture equipment for physical ergonomics contexts

    Lecturer/Teacher: Pelaez, Sebastian. MSc.

Section C – Cognitive Ergonomics “Eye-Tracking”

    In this section we will explain the subject of cognitive load and its importance in industrial environments. For this, we will carry out a demonstration of the use of direct capture equipment for cognitive ergonomics contexts.

    Lecturer/Teacher: Berrio, Shyrle. MSc. PhD(c)

Section D – Digital Ergonomics. Applications in Industry

    In this section of the course, the application of digital environments around ergonomics will be presented. For this, we will have the application of these concepts on the automotive industry showing the main strengths and challenges at the time of implementation.

    Saavedra-Robinson, Luis. IE, PhD: Industrial Engineer from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Bogotá. PhD in Ergonomics from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain. Consulting experience in hygiene industrial at oil & gas industry. As a researcher, he looking for the relationship between industrial process, methods and productivity with ergonomics conditions at the workplace, recollecting, analyzing and interpreting a Biomechanical, Anthropometrical and Physiological data for different projects on several sectors: Flowers, Automobile, Sugar Cane, Construction, Foods & Grocery, and Transport among others. As an Assistant Professor, he was the Industrial Engineering undergraduate degree director in Cali, Colombia, where, he leads the international accreditation ABET for the academic program, coordinated the redesign of the curriculum and participated in the national industrial engineering networks (ACOFI). His recent work aims to relate human factors to new trends in the industry (human modeling in industrial environments, industry 4.0, logistics and others).
