Development of a Checklist for the Use of Anthropometric Man-Models 2001-01-2116
One of the elective courses for students of Industrial Design Engineering is ADAPS (Anthropometric Design Assessment Program System). During this course students learn to work with the ADAPS anthropometric man-models. We made an analysis of what goes wrong when students use ADAPS. Based on this analysis we developed a checklist for the use of ADAPS, listing what students should be aware of before, during and after the use of an anthropometric man-model. Recently we started to use this checklist during the ADAPS course. The checklist and the preliminary results of the use of the checklist in education are presented.
