Productivity Solutions Limited (PSL) and EASE Inc. have announced the appointment of Ron Girlie as a business partner, who will promote the EASE Software Product ErgoEASE within European Union countries as of March 2004. ErgoEASE is a comprehensive ergonomic software analysis tool for manufacturing, which is designed around the concept that operation times are often critical and that in solving ergonomic issues, the effects on time must be taken into account. John Wilde and Peter Woodward of PSL had known Girlie for a number of years, and were aware of his reputation as an industrial engineering consultant with a wide experience of applying ergonomics. Girlie has already bench tested the ErgoEASE system and was convinced of the benefits it could bring to the study of workplace layouts and associated issues.
