Julia Abate to deliver keynote at 2023 INFORMS QSR Conference

Executive Director Julia Abate will deliver a keynote address at the 2023 INFORMS QSR Conference on June 7, 2023 at NC State University. The topic is “Technology Challenges and Opportunities in Ergonomics”. 

The field of ergonomics is currently seeing a migration towards the integration of AR/VR, wearable technology, vision systems and other technology to collect data and/ or conduct risk analysis. While vendor options are quickly growing, technology is not always collecting the right data and the data that is collected is not always accurate.  This session will discuss the technologies currently being used by world class ergonomics programs in industry, the challenges and opportunities with implementation, and future technology and data needs that will allow practitioners to make quick and accurate decisions to improve the health and wellbeing of the workforce.
