Maintainability is one of the design parameters (reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety (RAMS)) and maintenance is needed to keep the respective design in sustainable use. At the same time, the human is involved in the form of interface and interaction in an engineered product/system designed. Ergonomics is a multi-discipli nary science that considers human capabilities and limitations in a broader sense. The objective of this paper is to integrate ergonomics into the maintainability design process in order to facilitate maintenance operation in lesser; time, cost, easier operation as well as the well-being of human who is involved. In other words, good er gonomics lead to good economics and in a broader sense, sustainability. This investigation shows that designing comfortable workplaces and lesser workload for maintenance operators will be beneficial for the maintainability design process and also improve the meantime to repair MTTR. In order to evaluate the effect of ...
