Abstract

Despite the increasing level of automation and digitalization in manufacturing, manual assembly is still important. Factors affecting human performance can increase errors and generate quality issues. In this paper, we investigate how overtime allocation practices can impact the level of fa-tigue. The manufacturing process object of analysis face variations in pro-duction levels and staffing needs change accordingly. A total of 12 shift ar-rangements (six mornings and six evenings) were evaluated using the Fa-tigue Index developed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the United Kingdom. Results show that evening shifts are in general more sen-sitive to overtime allocation compared to morning shifts due to the difference in lengths and time of the day. The analysis helps supervisors to take into account the different impacts of overtime allocation practices on potential levels of fatigue depending on the type of shift and the shift arrangement.
