Magetan leather shoes are one of the leather industries in Indonesia that produce quality and durable products. One of the stations in Magetan leather shoes, namely the upper sole assembly station, shows a hunched posture of workers and the operator's hands hanging. This project aims to assist the operator of the upper sole assembly station to adjust its position with the design of work facility. The design of work facilities begins with distributing Nordic Body Map (NBM) and Quick Exposure Check (QEC) questionnaires to operators, Calculation of Quick Entire Body Assessment (REBA), Anthropometry and using NIDA (Need, Idea, Decision, Action) Method. As a result, based on the results of the NBM, there are complaints of musculoskeletal disorders in the back as the most complaints. Then, at QEC it was found that further research is needed and implement changes. In the REBA method, a score of 8 is obtained, which means high risk, investigate, and implement changes. Because of these problems, a work desk and chair are designed using NIDA method and Best-Worst Method. An alternative comparison was made on the design materials of work desks and chairs, namely aluminum, wood, and iron to obtain the best criteria as materials for making work desks and chairs. The criteria considered in each alternative are strength, price, availability, durability, and aesthetics. By using the Best-Worst Method, aluminum is obtained as the best alternative material that best meets the criteria as a material for making work desks and chairs.
