What is Ergonomics?
Brief history, Definition and importance of ergonomics,
Type of problem/mismatch found in every day activity,
product or service.
Report: Find your optimal product, or criticize a product.
Students has to pick up a product or service or even a
building and find the advantages and disadvantages in
the design. Personal impression is enough.

The Ergonomics Knowledge base.
How the body and mind work
Energy requirements at work, mind information process and
use of sensory capabilities.
Report: Make an Anthropometric data base. Students can
measure or use available data and observe the differences
between genders, and nations. Then learn how to compare
them, and how to use the data in designing a product or
Anatomical and Mechanical Structure of human body,
anthropometry, and anthropometric data.

General Design Requirements
Report: Final project. Students have to develop an ergonomic
design using the techniques they learned. The design can be a
product, a tool, a building, or a service. For those who
chose to develop a product or a tool can use 3D printing
techniques to make a prototype.
Others can submit their design on papers using drawings.
