Abstract
Anthropometric principles have been applied to many applications in various industries, for reasons of product value, efficacy and safety. This paper presents four anthropometric approaches for product design decisions. A univariate method has been widely used in designing for extremes, such as in determining door heights. A bivariate method has been useful for products that primarily involve dual essential dimensions, such as in shoe-sizing applications. For many other applications, a multivariate accommodation approach is necessary to account for both the body size variance and proportional variability. A 3D shape-quantification approach is advisable for determining sizing schemes and. size ranges of personal protective equipment, such as fan protection harnesses. A 3D digital feature-envelope approach is instrumental for placement of control components in workspaces, such as in a farm-tractor-cab accommodation.
