Benjamin W. Niebel Work Design Lab

Both undergraduates and graduate students who work in the Benjamin W. Niebel Work Design Lab focus on the human within the context of today’s technological work environment. Work analyses are conducted to improve industrial processes and methods, design and build interfaces between humans and the environment to enable control of complex systems, and advance the development and management of organizations from a social-technical perspective.

Located in 235 Leonhard Building, the lab provides close to 1,000-square-feet of laboratory space dedicated to human factors research and education and contains an extensive array of equipment to measure physical, physiological, and cognitive performance. Strength, electromyography, temperature, stress, aerobic capacity, eye tracking, reaction times, time study, and work sampling are typical measurement applications.

The lab operates under the direction of Andris Freivalds, Lucas Professor of Industrial Engineering.
