Good designers and ergonomists pay close attention to preventing discomfort and increasing comfort when they design products or develop work-stations and production lines. This unique book bridges the gap between theory and design practice. It presents examples of successful design in which discomfort is reduced and productivity and health are improved. The practical design examples considered include a (Swedish) Bahco paint scraper, a New York commuter train seat for a Bombardier train, an Alstom (French) street car driver's cabin, a Paus (German) earth moving machine interior, and production lines at Volvo and Philips. The book also focuses on the costs and revenue implications.
