The 13th edition of Methods, Standards, and Work Design will provide practical, up-to-date descriptions of engineering methods to measure, analyze, and design manual work. The text emphasizes both the manual components and the cognitive aspects of work, recognizing the gradual decline of the manufacturing sector and the growth of the service sector. The importance of ergonomics and work design as part of methods engineering emphasizes not only increased productivity, but also to improve worker health and safety, and thus, company bottom-line costs. In the twenty-first century it is essential that the industrial engineer consider both productivity issues and their efforts on the health and safety of the worker.

Both undergraduates and graduate students who work in the Benjamin W. 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 Leonhard Building, the lab provides close to 1,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. Home of the first established industrial engineering program in the world, the Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering IME at Penn State has made a name for itself in the engineering industry through its storied tradition of unparalleled excellence and innovation in research, education, and outreach.
