Review of Human Factors Engineering: Its Contributions to the Performance Efficiency of Manufacturing Workers in Industries.

Nwosu M. C.


Human factor engineering(HFE), the ability of human to perform physical work, focusing on the size of the force and convenience required to do a particular movement or work effectively .This except reviews the principles of work , location and posture, control, comfort, convenience and performance of the operators of mechanisms, devices and machines. More so, the various aspects of contributions of HFE in engineering and technology are discussed of the principles and applications of different organization immense contribution, such as the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE), International Standard Organization (ISO), Air force system command (AFSC), and so on. The integration of these organizational research findings in technology and the extent to which they are applied has increased the performance and efficiency in industrial, social and military activities. Hence human factors engineering has greatly improved technological operations and the comfort of human life and the society.
