    Digital Transformations for Lighting in the Workplace: A Systematic Approach Used in Ergonomics offers a practical concept for the implementation of digital transformation in ergonomics in work settings. It specifically focuses on providing information about illumination in production and non-production fields, and the described design solutions are applicable in practice. The concepts can be used in a typical manufacturing workplace or an academic setting.

    The methods in the book complement the modern trend to digitalise the workplace, making the research and practical outcomes of this book compatible with the concept of Industry 4.0 - Digital Manufacturing. This title offers a systematic approach to the field of digital transformation for ergonomics. It presents an opportunity for the reader to learn to create a digital model for lighting by analysing mathematical models for calculation through formulas and simulation algorithms. To put learning into context, this book provides two case studies from the production and non-production sectors, including an example of a classroom. The reader will then be able to utilise the methods to create their own digitized illumination system.

    This monograph is an ideal read for academics and researchers working at universities in the field of Ergonomics and professionals in industrial management including those in manufacturing plants, ergonomists, designers from the industry sector, or people who are interested in ergonomics, digitization, and simulation of a working environment.
