In this paper Authors have tried to calculate the maximum Recommended Weight Limit (RWL) for manual lifting task in industry on the basis of revised Load constant (LC), Horizontal Multiplier (HM), Vertical Multiplier (VM), which are calculated according to the collected data from industry. The purpose of this paper is to efficiently determine the optimum combination of those three factors to achieve the maximum recommended weight limit. In the order to meet the purpose in term of Recommended Weight Limit (RWL), author has applied the taguchi parametric optimization technique. The base of this study is NIOSH lifting equation, in this equation the recommended weight is calculated by the multiplication of seven factors, authors have worked only three factors i.e. LC, HM, VM respectively.
