Ergonomic Design/Time and Motion Analysis

Good design is more than aesthetics. To gain the market edge, a product’s design must also integrate functionality and ergonomics. Ergonomics is the application of scientific information concerning humans to the design of objects, systems and environments for human use. Ergonomics is the study of the interaction of a person with a machine. Information derived from Ergonomics contribute to the design and evaluation of tasks, jobs, products, environments and systems in order to make them compatible with the needs, abilities and limitations of people. It is the applied science of equipment design intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue.

A time and motion study would be used to reduce the number of motions in performing a task in order to increase productivity. The best known experiment involved bricklaying. Through carefully scrutinizing a bricklayer’s job, Frank Gilbreth reduced the number of motions in laying a brick from 18 to about 5. Hence the bricklayer both increased productivity and decreased fatigue.

Cuisine Styling and Photography

Restaurant operators have an average of three minutes to impress customers with their menus. Make the most of that precious time by creating a menu that effectively markets your restaurant. Menus set the mood. Maximizing the impact of your menu during those three precious minutes that guests typically spend with it begins by understanding the greater function of a menu.

A truly effective menu can sell much more than just the dishes you serve it can promote your entire operation.

Your menu is part of an ensemble of ambiance-enhancing elements that act in concert to achieve the right atmosphere for a restaurant and draw customers in.
