Computer Supported Visualization of Ergonomic Guidelines 2003-01-2181
This study attempts to discover how ergonomic guidelines should be visualized in order to make it easier and more interesting to find and interpret the guidelines throughout the construction process. A prototype visualizing ergonomic guidelines at the intranet has been developed and evaluated at a company that produces cars for the global market. The results shows that the visualization of ergonomic guidelines should preferably be based on a picture of the physical car with hyperlinked segments easy to relate to a group of guidelines or a specific guideline. A specific ergonomic guideline should preferably have measurements related to pictures of car objects and human body parts.
