We try to evaluate the manual work numerically from a point of view of the homogeneousness and the simultaneousness of both hands using the results of the micromotion study. The weighted coefficient and the balance index are used to evaluate the homogeneousness of both hands. And the simultaneous index is used to evaluate the simultaneous movement of both hands. It is necessary to make a program in order to use efficiently the method to calculate the indexes or the coefficients. Therefore the computer program of these methods is mentioned in this paper.
