In this paper we consider scheduling problem under ergonomic risk factors. We recruit OCRA index to control musculoskeletal disorder along schedule. Modern manufacturing systems competition power depends on cost, time and flexibility level. Despite of high level automation in manufacturing system, flexibility depends on human workforce. From this perspective, for gaining high rate production, workforces have to endure high frequency manual job. This case causes musculoskeletal disorder. Musculoskeletal disorder which had to be control is one of the most important ergonomic risks in work environment. We used OCRA index mean value for ergonomic risk assessment. We also named this new type of scheduling as Ergo-Scheduling.
