Abstract:

In recent workplace design projects at ARL, a procedure for the use of anthropometric information has be developed which relies on the use of sets of anthropometric data from individuals rather than the conventionally used pooled data. This Report describes a graphic anthropometric design aid which has been devised to assist in the implementation of this procedure. The aid predicts the ppositions, in side elevation, of certain cardinal points which are considered to be important to the design process, viz, the eye, thumb tip reach, knee point, seat reference point and heel point. This Report also contains details of the design aids validation, the concept of the aids use and the fidelity of the aid within the design process.
