Abstract

The aim of this work is to analyze the assembly of a selected component using Cyber Glove II data glove and CATIA V5 program using Rapid Upper Limb Assessment analysis (RULA). The RULA analysis is mainly used in the evaluation of work positions performed by workers in manual work such as assembly and disassembly. The RULA analysis assesses the individual states of posture, strength and muscle activity that have been proven to contribute to re-stressing the spine. The continuous advancement of computer technology also causes its participation in other industries. The purpose of this work is to analyze the selected assembly process in virtual reality, CAD program and using data gloves to capture process trajectories and propose corrective action using RULA analysis, which will eliminate shortcomings resulting from the previous state.
