  • Klaudiusz Fross
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8510)


Ergonomics is present in everyday design practice. Designers use it consciously or intuitively. They also do not take into account the realization of its principles. The paper presents a variety of examples of the application of ergonomic principles in the design. It shows the various aspects of ergonomic design selected examples of projects and the implementation of the author. It discusses ergonomics in kitchen technology, medical technology hospital facilities, hotels projects, industrial plants, water parks, playgrounds, etc. The purpose of this paper is to show the diversity of ergonomic issues occurring in daily practice. Demonstration of the need to start the design of the initial findings of ergonomic parameters, modules and optimization of technological systems. Ergonomics as a vital and necessary part of the initial phase of design - programming, which not only simplifies the design but also ensures optimum and safe use. Ergonomic design gives a measurable and tangible benefits for developers, investors and users. The paper is the author’s statement, presents his point of view, ergonomic in design.
