This was one of our class room projects where the aim of this project was to study and redesign on the basis of the fundamental principles of ergonomics. I redesigned the interface of a Vacuum forming machine, a machine used for molding plastic sheet by applying heat and vacuum.

The process involved user study and latter using these data coupled with the principles to generate a Drury’s matrix and task analysis, a product model was developed.

The anthropometric data helped us to determine the height of the machine and also position of the prosed crack.

The visual display arrangements was grouped according to sequence and function and the order was in left to right sequential orientation
