Description & Coverage
Description:

The overall design and strategies that create work systems within organizations must be evaluated and analyzed in order to ensure that all structures of a company are properly harmonized. Harmonizing all aspects of a company serves to optimize workflow and support all interactions between employees, machines, and software utilized by the company.

Advanced Macroergonomics and Sociotechnical Approaches for Optimal Organizational Performance provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of system harmonization and applications within macroergonomics. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as stress-related conditions, organizational culture, and worker health, this book is ideally designed for ergonomists, human resource professionals, manufacturing engineers, industrial engineers, industrial designers, researchers, industry practitioners, research scientists, and academics seeking current research on the optimization of workflow and work systems.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Communication
  • Error Identification
  • Human Reliability
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Organizational Culture
  • Psychosocial Work Factors
  • Sociotechnical Systems
  • Stress-Related Conditions
  • Work Systems Design
  • Worker Health

Editor/Author Biographies

Arturo Realyvásquez has studied Ergonomics since 2008. He contributed to this science developing an expert system to measure ergonomic compatibility of advanced manufacturing technology. Most recently, he developed the Macroergonomic Compatibility Questionnaire (MCQ), he proved that macroergonomic compatibility has positive effects on work systems performance, and he proposed the macroergonomic compatibility index (MCI). Currently, he works as full-time professor in Instituto Tecnológico de Tijuana. He offers the classes of Ergonomics, Operations Research, and Research Fundamentals.

Aide Maldonado-Macías works as a professor-Investigator for the Autonomous University of Juarez Mexico. Dr. Maldonado has published several papers in various international journals and conference proceedings. She has been a member of the programme committee and scientific committee of several national and international conferences, in most cases also serving as referee. She is a certified professional in ergonomics in Mexico and she serves as Member of the Mexican Society on Ergonomics and the Society of Industrial Engineers. She also serves as Associate Editor of the AcademiaJournals.com journals and the Occupational Ergonomics Advances and Applications. She serves as referee for the International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology and the World Conference of Industrial Engineering. She has also been evaluator and reviewer for research projects in Mexico. She has obtained the recognition with her research the best investigation in Industrial Engineering in Mexico for the Tecnological Institute of Juarez México and has participated in the most prestigious International Conferences and Congresses on Ergonomics and Computers and Industrial Engineering. She has publications on indexed journals in her country and the International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology and the International Journal of Industrial Engineering. Also has contributions in book chapters for prestigious editorials.

Karina Cecilia Arredondo-Soto studied Industrial Engineer at the Tijuana Institute of Technology where she continued studying a Master Degree in Industrial Engineering too; with a minor in Manufacturing. She has a Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering at the Ciudad Juarez Institute of Technology. She is a full-time teacher at the Autonomous University of Baja California since 2012 and an invited Professor at the Tijuana Institute of Technology since 2008. Her interest area is work studies to improve productivity in organizations through the collaborative work with the industrial regional sector.
