Research

Work and how it is performed is the main research interest for Johan Karltun. New technology and ways of organising might be the enablers or levers that help humans to perform even better. However, the result may be anything but the expected if the interaction between the building blocks of humans, technology and organisation which constitutes every business is insufficiently understood and designed. In order to develop sustainable and efficient work, ergonomics or knowledge of the interaction between humans and their environment is of great importance. The main focus in the research of Johan Karltun is change processes for improving ergonomics and the coordination of work including human and organisational factors of planning and scheduling.

Biography

Johan Karltun received his M Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology 1979. After 12 years in industry and 8 in the Swedish Institute for Wood Technology Research he now is working as lecturer and researcher at the School of Engineering since 1999. He received his PhD in Industrial Ergonomics from the Institute of Technology at Linköping University in 2007and the title of his thesis is "On Stage - Acting for development of businesses and ergonomics in woodworking SMEs. Johan Karltun is teaching ergonomics, change management and production management.
