MTM – Work design productive and safe

Risk assessment made easy

The term EAWS stands for Ergonomic Assessment Worksheet and thus for a screening procedure developed by the MTM organization together with the Institut für Arbeitswissenschaft (Institute of Ergonomics) of the Technical University Darmstadt; this method was first developed as paper and pencil method and is being continuously developed with partners in industry and science.

The method supports its user with the assessment of physical stresses, when performing risk analysis and evaluating measures for the improvement of work ergonomics – from planning and engineering to the running production.

EAWSdigital was designed especially for the application of this method. Developed with the latest software development tools, you can enter and analyze all required process-related data in an easy and intuitive manner.

EAWSdigital runs both as stand-alone program and add-on integrated in other system environments.

The individual analyses are stored as *.EAWS files in the file system; from there they can be opened per double-click or exchanged between PCs.

EAWSdigital neither requires a TiCon installation nor the use of the MTM method: The required times of the individual motion sequences can also be measured or estimated.
