#042019/05/09 How the body and mind work? The Ergonomics Knowledge base.
- 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 a service.
Anatomical and Mechanical Structure of human body, anthropometry, and 
anthropometric data.


#052019/05/16 Thinking about people
- Thinking about people
- Risk Factors
Human capabilities in Learning, reasoning and memory. Contexts of use 
and requirements generation and PACT Analysis
Report: Do a PACT Analysis for a project (system, product, or 
service).

#122019/07/04 Ergonomics in Practice 1
Real-life examples
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.
