Technical and Human Aspects of Welding Work - Analysis of Efficiency and Ergonomics of Two Work Stations
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 1999

This publication was written during a period of time when the authors were engaged in an extensive research programme financed by the National Institute for Working Life in Solna (Cooperative for Optimisation of industrial production systems regarding Productivity and Ergonomics COPE). And, this publication deals with welding and welding work with regard to specific time consumption and particular ergonomic aspects, as was practised within the Autonova plant in Uddevalla (i.e. the successor of the Volvo Uddevalla plant reopened some years later).
