Activity-centered ergonomics has developed an approach to provide support for design projects which incorporates ergonomics work analysis, participatory design and simulation of work. As the approach has been initially developed and used in relation to technical and industrial design, there is nowadays an ongoing interest to apply it specifically to organizational design. In this communication, we examine the requirements for participating to organizational design settings and consequently the issues regarding the methods to be developed by ergonomics to support effectively organizational design project.
