Life in a fast-paced era demands a company to increase its productivity. One of them is the Bekonang roof tile company which is located in Sukoharjo, Central Java. The demand is quite stable and allows an increase in demand production, requiring Bekonang roof tile company to carry out the process more efficiently. However, in the process of making roof tiles, there are still less efficient activities, namely in the material handling process for wet tile transportation. The material handling process is only done manually, using only 2 hands by the operator. This condition can increase the damage during the wet tile transportation period because it can change the tile and also the tile is prone to falling. Therefore, it is necessary to make ergonomic equipments to increase the productivity of the Bekonang roof tile company. After adding the equipment for transporting tiles, within 12 minutes there were 135 tiles obtained more than not using equipment, namely 21 pieces.
