This study is to design a durian peeler machine that followed the ergonomic criteria.The problem statement for this study is peeling durian can lead to MSD problem. Based on the problem statement, the objective of this study is to design a durian peeler with an ergonomics approach using Solidworks software. For the methodology, the design will be based on two sources of data which are data gathered from the literature review and data gathered from the survey conducted. Survey is conducted for those people that has an experienced in handling hand held tools. The data obtain from the survey will be used as a guideline to modified the previous designed which is based on literature review. For the result, a final design of durian peeler which is based on the literature review and the survey conducted would be drafted in Solidworks software. The justification for the designed is made to ensure the design achieve its objective. For the conclusion, theoretically the designed can be considered as ergonomics product.
