Interactive Ergonomics Tool for Network Rail

Lucid developed an interactive application for a specialist role and task analysis tool produced by Network Rail’s Ergonomics Team. The application – the Work Domain Map Visualisation Tool – allows for analysis of operational roles on the railway by mapping individual roles in terms of purpose, function, tasks, tools and information required to carry out the role.

The tool can be used to evaluate how changes to, for example, equipment or working processes could affect the operator’s workload or the overall operation of the railway.

The tool was originally created as document-based diagrams. The online application allows for central access, version control and much improved user experience.
