Problem definition: ErgoSALBP is an extension of SALBP-1, which additionally considers ergonomic conditions of the workers when repeatedly performing the same workload (tasks assigned to the workplace). These ergonomic conditions can be included in the model in different ways leading to several problem versions (for details see Otto and Scholl, 2011, Section 3.2).

Data set: Based on the classical benchmark data set for SALBP-1, a data set with 7236 instances was generated by adding values for ergonomic strains to all tasks using the ergonomics  measuring method called OCRA index. For the details see Otto and Scholl (2011, Section 5.1).
