Ergonomics and Anthropometry Part 1

1. Compare the two types of setup and state reasons why one of the setup is preferred.

One of the setup has more simplicity in the design of the workplace, thus giving the user more comfort when doing their work. Also, the designs of the items in one of the office is much more convenient and more accessible to the user. The chairs, keyboards, desks all this are also put into the user's preferences, thus giving the user a better environment to work in. However, the other office is bad. The design of the workplace looks pretty much the same, but the problem lies with the design of the items in the office. The design of the workplace was not taken into account with the user's preferences, hence creating inconvenience and confusion for the user. The chairs, keyboards and the other office items in the workplace are also not in a suitable and preferred position for the user to user. Overall, this will cause the user to be uncomfortable and confused in his undesirable and not-preferred workplace.

2. What are the area of considerations when designing a conducive and comfortable workplace?

One of them is that the whole office environment must suit the user's preferences and liking. It is because the user would be able to work more efficiently in a workplace which he or she is comfortable with. The other factor is also the positions of the items in the office. Like in the above scenario, the positions of the user's office items were not positioned for the user to use comfortably.

3. State the reasons why these considerations are important.

A person would be able to work more efficiently in an environment he or she is familiar and comfortable with. Example, how can an office worker work in a construction site? It is similar to the above situation. The items' position in the workplace must be suited to the user's liking because it will save more effort and energy. For example, the office worker cannot find a suitable and prefered desk for him to work in and even a pen!

Photography photos

That is my friend Eugene posing while he is doing something serious. I think that students should do something serious like what he is doing.
That is a pose of me doing the victory sign of famous athlete Usain Bolt. I think that he is interesting and he shows the signs of a real champion.
That is me and my friend Norman discussing something important.
Norman, he has the potential of a student leader. So I pose him so people can know more about him

Difference between Isometric, Oblique and Orthographic Drawing

Isometric drawings involves dots and little details that results in extreme(ly) precise and accurate drawings. Isometric is 2d (2 dimensional).

Oblique drawings are different from isometric drawings in terms of dimensionals. Dots and geometry are greatly involved in it, just like isometric drawings.

Orthographic drawings are drawings which provides view from a 450 degree angle.
