This paper proposes and discusses the theoritical concepts of relevance to ergonomics which is mostly macroergonomics in the supply chain systems. The macro-ergonomics which is known as sociotechnical system tries to involve its role into today’s biggest issue in manufacturing global management which is called the supply chain management. The supply chain management has a close relationship with macro-ergonomics since both concern a system of organization, people, technology, information and other resources. Some case studies are discussed and summarized in this paper. In addition, a conceptual model of ergonomics supply chain is also proposed. Strategically, this work will help to broaden understanding of importance of ergonomics to boost supply chain performance drivers in order to gain efficiency and responsiveness in meeting company’s competitive strategy.
