Abstract: Ergonomic improvement in assembly line is the thing which the term generally refers to the scientific method of creating a favorable work and work space which demands to the ability of the workers. Ergonomic configuration is important to guarantee high efficiency, keep away from alignment and damage, and lift fulfillment and confidence among the workforce. More than satisfied and fulfilled workforce, work cells made of ergonomic structure offer noteworthy incentive to producers in terms of lesser output and worker compensation premiums. The system will be reactive or proactive when applying ergonomics. In reactive ergonomics, identifying current problems and take measures to correct them. In proactive ergonomics, seeing areas that can be improved and fix the issues before they become large problems. Each organization ensures the safety and comfortable environment of their workers, in turn they believe in increased quality and in performance ergonomically designed work cells and working equipments are the key area to be concentrated. In this study the problem is analyzed through pareto chart and cause and effect diagram one issue is taken as pallet transfer manual because of this manual pallet transferring workers facing issue like back pain and for this is a solution of ergonomically designed trolley to reduce worker fatigue and the productivity was improved by using major problem solving tools.
