REALYVASQUEZ VARGAS, Arturo; GARCIA ALCARAZ, Jorge Luis  e  BLANCO FERNANDEZ, Julio. Developing and validating a macro-ergonomic compatibility questionnaire. Contad. Adm [online]. 2016, vol.61, n.3, pp.478-498. ISSN 0186-1042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cya.2016.04.002.

This paper presents the development of a Macro-ergonomic Compatibility Questionnaire (MCQ), which focuses on collecting data about the implementation of macro-ergonomic principles which are related to human capital factors, organization, tasks, tools, technology as well as environmental conditions in manufacturing systems. The MCQ includes 3 sections: demographic data, application of macro-ergonomic principles and their importance. The questions are created according to the literature review, which are designed to be answered in ordinal scale. The MCQ validation is performed by a factorial analysis and experts' opinion. This instrument was administered to 188 manufacturing systems' employees and 6 ergonomics experts. The employees' results showed that only 8 of the 23 variables analyzed presented a value of Cronbach's alpha < 0.7, however, experts' results presented that 5 of 8 variables were the most important in their group, therefore they were maintained in the questionnaire.

Palavras-chave : Macro-ergonomic Compatibility Questionnaire; Manufacturing systems; Questionnaire validation; Macroergonomic elements; Macroergonomic practices.
