Abstract

This study aims to analyze the workload of operators and analyze the optimal number of workers to complete work on the part of the production. This study uses a method NASA - Task Load Index (NASA-TLX) of the six indicators to measure mental workload with the NASA-TLX method, namely mental needs, physical needs, time requirements, performance, level of frustration, and physical and mental effort obtained mental workload calculations on production operators as many as 4 operators experience mental workload categories very high, 13 operators with mental category workloads are high, 2 operators experience mental workload categories rather high, and 1 operator experiences mental workloads with moderate categories. Of the 4 work shift groups, all experienced a high mental workload so that an additional workforce was needed to reduce operator workload. After adding 1 operator in each group, the level of mental workload decreased to a rather high level. But of the 4 work shift groups, there is still 1 shift group that experiences high workloads despite having added 1 workforce.
