Combining Time and Physical Workload Analysis on Cold Press Working Group for Operator Management in Manufacturing Company
Industrial Engineering Deparment, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Islamic University of Indonesia, Jl. Kaliurang km 14.5, Yogyakarta Indonesia
Efficiency improvement in manufacturing company is essential to ensure the cycle of continuous improvement. Prior decision was reducing 6 operators in the cold press team work into 5 workers. Thus significant changes, of course, would resulted in the change of the workload experienced by each operator. The research objective in this study is validating from the productivity of the reduction conducted by measuring the workload with combining Full Time Equivalent (FTE) and Cardiovascular Load Percentage (%CVL). The result states that there are differences in measurement results workload from both methods. Based on the FTE method, all Cold Press operator’s workload has an index in average of 1.4128 with all was above 1.28 indicating the “Overload” condition. On the other hand, based on the physical workload method obtained that % CVL in average was 8.272% with all operator was below 30% which indicates the workload of all Cold Press operators were in a not experiencing fatigue category. Keywords: Workload, FTE, %CVL, productivity, Physical Workload.
