Présentation de l'éditeur

Human factors research impacts everything from the height of kitchen counters to the placement of automobile pedals to a book′s type size. And in this updated and expanded version of the original landmark work, you′ll find the research information necessary to create designs that better accommodate human need. Featuring more than 200 anthropometric drawings, this handbook is filled with all of the essential measurements of the human body and its relationship to the designed environment. You′ll also discover guidelines for designing for children and the elderly, for the digital workplace, and for ADA compliance. Measurements are in both English and metric units.

Quatrième de couverture

Praise for the first edition:

Gold Medal Winner for Design Explorations
–Business Week′s Annual Design Awards

"The Measure of Man and Woman is a critical reference that is a must for every design school and office. It is elegant in its simplicity and usability. Once again, the Henry Dreyfuss team makes a major contribution to the profession!"
–Herb Tyrnauer, FIDSA

"The Measure of Man and Woman is a major contribution to the understanding of anthropometric and ergonomic realities that influence the design process. It is a vital reference document that not only informs, but provokes an awareness of and a sensitivity to complex and composite issues. Not since Le Corbusier′s more subjective and interpretive Le Modulor has there been a comprehensive reevaluation of man and woman′s occupation of space and the subsequent implications, responsibilities, and possibilities."
–Charles Gwathmey, FAIA, architect

The Measure of Man and Woman provides a comprehensive resource of critical information for creating products and environments that will suit the physical dimensions of people across the globe and with varying abilities. The revised edition of this classic volume includes more than 200 color drawings, up–to–date information on designing for the digital workplace, measurements for ADA compliance, a demo disk for ErgoForms–an ergonomic CAD program on CD–ROM–and much more.

Première phrase
In gathering data on the size of the body and its components, movement limitations, and strength-all of which are required to establish human-machine relationships and other design requirements-numerous measurement devices are employed. Lire la première page

great reference - cd is pretty worthless 3 août 2005
Par Steev D. Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
this book is a great reference for those who deal in any way with the human form. i, for example, am a 3d character animator and this book is perfect for nailing correct human proportions and visualizing range of motion. however, the accompanying cd is basically an advertisement for ErgoForms, the autocad version of the drawings in the book. only the 1% man drawing (the smallest average male figure)is included on the cd, which is pretty useless for what i need. if the book weren't so expensive i'd give it a four star rating. i thought i was getting more on the cd to warrant the price.

Awesome reference 5 novembre 2006
Par egirl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
There's minimal reading in this book, which is nice since it's good for reference. The reading that it does have is very simple with bulleted paragraphs full of information that you can't get from looking at the diagrams.

Great diagrams for industrial design students (I got this for one of my classes), gives you the measurements, reach, sight and motion range, pretty much any numeric info you need to know for the 1 percentile, 99 percentile, and 50 percentile man/woman.

Also has nice chart of child development w/descriptions of what the ave. child can do at each age, as well as diagrams for the elderly (and in wheelchair). This book is essential if you are going for product design or interior design.

Great book, Awful CD 30 mars 2011
Par Ben M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The book is great. Information is presented clearly and is easy to find.

HOWEVER, I had really expected more from the CD. It DOES NOT CONTAIN DEMO SOFTWARE for a version of ERGOFORMS, it contains a couple of cad files generated by that program. Unfortunately, they are not particularly useful ones. (VELLUM, DXF and DWG files for a 7 year old child, 1% male, and 1% female.) As another reviewer points out, the CD is basically an advertisement.

If you want to buy this book for the info in the book, that's fine; it's a great book. If you are buying it because you think that there is something useful on the CD, I would suggest that you are making a mistake.

a great reference book 30 octobre 2007
Par nicole88115 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm studying furniture design and this book will be extremely helpful for me. It gives tons and tons of measurements throughout the human life span. All kinds of positions, arrangements, etc. There is section on every age, even infants and elderly. It's also just an interesting thing to read, regardless of being an awesome reference book. I loved reading about how different abilities/capacities develop at certain ages. This way you can know when humans are able to do what. This can help better understand human's needs, in a physical and spatial sense.

Great book, just get it.

Great Design Resource 30 septembre 2008
Par J. Ickes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is an excellent resource for designing products that must accomodate various shapes and sizes of people. The charts provide a useful starting point for design. Some data, however, is quite old which dilutes it's relevancy. Also, do not purchase the instant, online access to this book. There are many dimesions and small details which can't be read due to the poor resolution of the on-screen viewer.
