Abstract: This study presents design optimization of Dosa making workstation (DMW) used in preparation of South Indian food, dosa. Anthropometry of South Indian user population is considered in ergonomic interface analysis. Design of Experiments (DOE) was used for optimization of DMW. Four control parameters (shoulder height, arm length of worker, table width and table height of DMW) were considered in design optimization. Proposed parameters (height, 1150 mm; width, 750 mm) reduced risk of musculoskeletal disorder for users and enhanced quality of work at DMW.
