||This paper discusses some of the problems faced by developing countries in the introduction of new technology. Topics discussed include: human resources and economic factors; cultural considerations and adjustment to the techniques and disciplines associated with mechanised workplaces; coping with new technology; matching technology with users; workplace characteristics and working environment; education as an agent for change. It is concluded that ergonomists in developing countries could provide assistance in making appropriate technology choices, and ergonomists in the industrialised nations could provide input at the planning and implementation stages.
