Description

This program examines the process of matching products and tasks with people and shows the students the numerous factors that need to be considered when designing products for optimum usability. Using an example of a basic can opener as a non-adjustable design, the film shows how essential it is for anthropometrical data and biomechanics to be considered in the design procedure. The film also discusses other factors such as adjustable designs and specialised designs. The film successfully explains to the student that good ergonomic design results in an efficient, safe and comfortable use of products. These issues are examined under the headings: * Ergonomics (definition) * Understandability * Physical fit * Anthropometry * Applying ergonomics in design * Non adjustable design, broad user range (Can opener) * Adjustable designs (Seating) * Specialised design (Triathlete's cycle shoe) Everyone will find this program valuable in that it encourahges people to consider better ways of design
