This paper will attempt to briefly elaborate on the ergonomics view of capabilities and limitations of people and machines. In order to adequately understand these capabilities and limitations, it is essential to realize that they exist simultaneously and should therefore be addressed in the same form. This perception is also often referred to as one that is incorporated in Human Engineering (Marras & Karwowski, 2006). The purpose of optimization in the capabilities and limitations of human and machine factors is to develop system designs that function productively and in which productivity is not hindered a result of the limitations.
The capabilities of people, according to the ergonomics view are limited as a result of the paradox created as a result of the presence of multiple methods and the complications present in the task of making these methods implementable. The employees have to be made fully aware of the intricacies of the ergonomics being put into place in order to ensure that they are able to make full use of them. Any deficiency in the communication and/or interpretation of procedures can result in less-than-optimal productivity (Marras & Karwowski, 2006). In addition, the relationships between the human-machine processes serve to make the implementation of ergonomics all the more complicated. In this regard, factors such as user adaptability, reliability of product, system performance and operational errors and stress come into play.
Once a system has been setup in which there is interaction between human and machine, further limitations come across in the form of the obstructions encountered in ensuring that the user is competently able to sustain performance and retain the given training.
