Abstract

An on-line, interactive and user-friendly computerized knowledge-base system is presented in this paper. It makes Human Factors information available to designers of consumer products. The Ergonomic Design Analysis Database (EDAD) requires the use of personal computer technology without extensive computer knowledge on the part of the user. The database is structured so that several screen menus provide various options for the user. The information, guidelines and dimensions are available for New Designs as well as Pre-existing Designs.
