About this Unit
From 2016 this unit will be replaced by 301073 Design Studio 1: Patterns and Products. Ergonomics is the study of the interaction between people, their environments, and their objects. A sound understanding of the principles of ergonomics allows a designer to develop products, systems and environments with optimum usability, comfort, pleasure and productivity for the end user. In this unit, students undertake their own ergonomic study. They are firstly introduced to modelling workshop procedures. They then build and test a model hand-held product, and integrate user feedback into its redesign. Other interchangeable terms for ergonomics are Biomechanics, Ergonometrics, Human Engineering, and Human Factors.
