The physical and mental capacities of employees are one of the most important factors affecting production efficiency. The boundaries of the physical and mental capacities are influenced by the conditions of the working environment as well as the structural characteristics of the human being. These are the physical characteristics of the work environment, such as lighting, noise, ventilation, vibration. These characteristics affect the performance of the employee and the level of workload that he or she can overcome, either positively or negatively. In order to achieve productivity in production, employees need to be assigned to jobs having appropriate workload levels for their capacities When the workload level is high, worker fatigue occurs at the early stage of the work. Fatigue causes strain in respiration system, circulation system, musculoskeletal system, central nervous system carrying out the basic functions of the body, as the body's basic functions. When fatigue continues for a long time, negative results such as absenteeism, decline in quality level and work accidents can occur. Fatigue also reduces employee motivation. In this context, a worker assignment model aiming workload minimization has been proposed that takes into consideration the factors such as the amount of production, the weight of the workload to be worked together, the temperature, lighting, noise level of working area and working posture. The proposed model was used to assign employees to jobs performed in the field of box letter manufacturing of an advertising firm to make possible to utilize an assignment that minimizes the level of strain.
