Abstract:

This standard gives the design engineer both human factors engineering design principles and detailed criteria. The design principles are stated as general rules to be applied during system-development programs or as essential items that must be considered during design to insure that sound human factors engineering practices will be incorporated. The detailed criteria consist of dimensions, ranges, tolerances, and other specific data. In some cases, the range of acceptable dimensions and other factors may be rather large. Where only the minimum and maximum are given, design engineers may select any part or item within the recommended range. But where optimum dimensions are given, designers should aim to approximate them whenever possible.
