his study proposes a methodological review and an

illustrative example for the physical stress management

in manufacturing system. In particular, it investigates the

complexity of human factors, as related with ergonomics and

fatigue, and their interaction with resources and operational

rules in flow assembly line. The paper implements system

dynamics and agents based approach to overcome discrete

events ineffectiveness. On managerial pursuit, correlation

between relevant variables and states in system are

evaluated as per optimal production requirements. Criticality

on operating rules as related to the evaluation of physical

stress in manufacturing tasks are reported. ANOVA tests

were discussed. Conclusions in terms of optimal assignment

of operators to workstation and moving choice between

workstation are reported as related with system and human

Conference. He has been engaged in the auto sector for both human fac-

tor analysis and ergonomic research, scheduling optimization, production

management. He has collaboration with firms of the production and service

sector applying the results of his work to help multinational companies and

SMEs to generate safety and optimize services and profits. He is an acting

Consultant to several major companies and patent initiatives. He is active in

initiating knowledge transfer to industry. His research activity encompasses

the area of human factor and corporate strategy; industrial system design

processes; additive manufacturing and advanced manufacturing; simula-

tion and virtual modelling; agent based modelling; assembly line balancing;

healthcare management and clinical risk assessment; scheduling and opti-

misation; safety and risk analysis.
