Operating in an increasingly competitive market, buses and agricultural equipment are facing the changes that passed trucks and commercial vehicles. Those changes are affecting drastically the final cost of the product and consequently its relationship with the costumer.
This constant for more competitive prices drives the companies to develop more aggressive strategies of components standardization on a global level, leading to the emergency of global products in regional applications, keeping regional particularity characteristics when operating in the field.
In the bus market, it is confirmed that in various media and academic publications there are recurrent complains about driver comfort by several factors related from the ergonomics of the workplace, as well as with operators from agricultural implements.
It is sure, however, that the main aim in this work is related to ergonomic analysis and a communication proposals for greater interaction in the relationship between the automaker industry (Chassis and driving force) and bodywork industry (for bus).
Understanding the co-responsibilities of this market, this paper presents the results of the analysis of three cases with the influence of CNH Industrial to mitigate future problems through analysis of the job of each application.
