Abstract: Simulation can support the design of an ergonomic workplace through early assessment of ergonomic conditions. An important feature is the possibility to study alternative solutions or the effect of further improvements in a virtual environment. This paper discusses a roadmap for linking economic information to ergonomics simulation. This can support a company in deciding to improve workstations that already fulfil the ergonomic standards.
