About this Unit
In 2011 this unit replaced by 300776 - Applied Ergonomics. Ergonomics is the study of the interaction between people, their living and working environments and the objects they use in those environments. Scientific information and research concerning humans is applied to the design of objects, systems and environments they interact with. A sound understanding of the principles of this applied science allows a designer to develop products, systems and environments with optimum usability, providing increased comfort, pleasure and productivity of the end user/operator. Other interchangeable terms for ergonomics are Biotechnology, Ergonometrics, Human Engineering, Human Factors Engineering and Human Factors.
