    Abstract

    In this study, work place productivity was evaluated by task performance and fatigue. The relationship of fatigue and task performance was studied by using the data of the controllable and uncontrollable illuminance level conditions with Task and Ambient Lighting system. When the subjects could control their task lights, performance of the triple digit multiplication task was significantly higher (p=0.01) and text typing test was tend to be higher (p=0.09) than that when they could not control the task lights. There was significant negative correlation between fatigue level of subjects and their performance of the multiplication task and text typing test.
