The following paper presents a study covering the analysis of tasks and processes in remote lock operation centersaround Germany including soft- and hardware design components in use. Based on the results, a new conceptintegrating ergonomic requirements for remote control and monitoring has been developed. This concept enables theassignment of optimal workload to one workplace by determining the potential straining condition within one shift.For the purpose of integrating prospective and retrospective evaluation, a practical guide for personnel managementand scheduling has been developed. It includes a questionnaire and calculation specifications that can be genericallyadapted to other remote operation centers. In addition to the strain which is evoked by the main tasks of lock controland monitoring, it also considers the impact of additional tasks. Based on the developed concept for remote controland monitoring and in accordance with the assessed ergonomic design requirements, the control panel layout hasbeen determined with regard to anthropometric dimensions.
